If the fireworks for the fair opening were held on Friday evening, what was the big show of fireworks on Saturday evening? Were these also at the fairgrounds, for the fair, or were they somewhere else for another occasion?

I also heard, then saw the fireworks on Saturday evening, coming out of the movies over at Hacienda. Quite a booming show - what were they??

We went to the Fair over the weekend and saw the SF Bay Bombers skate.

What a great time we had and boy did it bring back memories of when we used to watch them on TV as kids.
