Target Fireworks

Last night the international sky over the Detroit River hosted the 50th annual fireworks show celebrating the Independence of Canada (July 1st) as well as the Independence of America (July 4th).  I love the beginning of the show when helicopters fly overhead bearing the American and Canadian flags.  Being able to celebrate the country of my birth – Canada – as well as my adopted country at the same time is delightful.  I had the fortune of watching the display from the Riverfront Towers complex to the west of Hart Plaza.  Our complex hosts about 8000 people every year for the event.  Residents are limited to 8 guests each; wristbands are therefore a hot commodity; and the Signature Grille was hosting a ticketed public event as well.  The otherwise peaceful complex took on the feel of college dorms during frosh week complete with a band, outdoor food offerings, with a smattering of drunken shenanigans; thank you “Team Riverfront” for keeping good order.  It was a great party.  My favourite firework of the night was a red star surrounded by a white circle near the end of the show.
