Freedom Festival Fireworks Finale Spurs Disappointment

So yesterday I watched the annual fireworks on a nice rooftop in the city. While the show seemed to be an average show (which isn’t a bad thing), a big blast of fireworks came out, and quickly ended about 25 seconds later.

I presumed this was to mark the moment that the grand finale was set to begin. I had my camera ready, and the one shot I had already taken of the quick blast were way overexposed. I was ready for something that never came. It was the end.

Usually finales last for AT LEAST a full minute. Hopefully next year will yield a better finale.

    You mean the 20+ minutes of continuous fireworks preceding that moment weren’t enough for you?

    I have to agree that the finale this year was disappointing. The rest of it was about on par but there was a significant lack of “let’s fire off everything we got right now!” feeling at the end.

    I just hope the weather won’t be as crappy next year.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t get to enjoy the fireworks like I usually do. I always pack the kids and a few of their friends and meet my sister and girlfriends at our designated spot. We ususally B-B-Q and let the children run around until the festivities begin. Well this year I arrived and too many people have discovered our spot, copied our routine, and even started fighting and got the police all up in our face. I had to find my daughter, relocate, and struggle to see. Man, some people just need to stay home if all they want to do is cause trouble. I’ve been doin’ this for about 13 years straight, visiting the same spot and have never been so disappointed. So I thought by seeing the finale, I’d get at least a bit of satisfaction. But, maybe next year. The finale was rather boring.
