10 minutes!  What the heck, the local car dealer Dude in Crown Point, Indiana puts on a 1/2 hour+  show with finale.

 

Wow... What a bunch of cheapskates.  @mead107 makes longer "glorious explosions" in a GBiD "Would Ya" thread!

You do know your hometown no longer has a firework display on the 4th?

Those that live in glass houses...shall not throw stones.

LoL... What is it on the 3rd? Not every town has them on 4th. If none at all, they need to get commercial sponsors!

 

Anyway... Do you remember the Ron Jaworski Stadium fireworks fiasco in the early 1980s... That forever traumatized my wife.  Looking for the story.  I think one person died.

Our local fireworks show, which I enjoy, lasts 10 minutes on the dot.

 

There is always a show put on by the Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra that I love.  The last couple years, they've been playing into the fireworks show, which I think is great.  There are also a bunch of food trucks around.  I love the evening, but wish the actual fireworks would go longer.

Average firework display is 1,000 a minute...I hope your local libraries are not suffering cuts like most around the country are.

enjoy and don't forget to take a few hits of gorilla glue right before the display.

The display on the 3rd is a silly one..couple hundred people go to see a half added country singer.

Anyway...I joined the service in '82..came back home in 1988.

I'm pretty sure Cheektowaga had something bad happen..'90's?Thinking  the explosives started hitting St.Joe's/Sisters Charity..and the crowd...

The local library's budget goes UP and I vote yes every time.

Rich Stadium around 1975 following the last North American show of the Stones tour. Let’s just say I.......might have been in the mood for a fireworks show. Nothing since has really compared.

You My Man are a champion!!!!

 

My wife heads a medium-sized to large town public library.  She will be thankful there are people like you!!!!

 

It's small peanuts on your tax bill and the services 10 fold dollar for dollar that is returned to taxpayer IFF they utilize the available services!!! Yet, it depends on what direction the library is moving and how modern their approach is!!!

Most here, big ones are put on, underwritten by buisness.  The one in Crown Point, Indiana IMO is a good.  Usually put on by the Chevy Dealer held at county fairgrounds.

 

Chicago puts on a Wednesday and Saturday night  extended display every week from Memorial Day to Labor Day... Over Navy Pier @ 21:30CDT.

Went to Hong Kong one Christmas season and the various stores and buildings competed with each other with displays.  Then during Christmas they did a two hour show over the harbor with fireworks going off from one end to the other with synchronized music going on from number of high rise buildings .   That was really great.

 

One summer we went to Darrien Lakes Six Flag on way to Buffalo family event and paid for just the night show.  Great show with fireworks and we considered seeing again on way out of area but decided it would be to late afterward to drive all the way to Virginia.

There’s a reason why it is referred to as Sloppy Joes.  

 

If I was in a bad car accident w/injuries on Harlem Rd right in front of Joes, I’d still insist on not being taken there.

Houston Astros. Back when they were losing 100+ games a year, put on the best fireworks shows. They still put on really good ones. They're all synchronized to music. They did a Billy Joel/Elton John meadly one night and it was awesome.

Technically the best I've ever seen would have to be at Disney in Epcot but my personal favorite would be the neighborhood shows I used to put on with about 5 or 6 of my neighbors about 15 years or so ago now.  That's something I would love to be able to re-live but some people moved away, a couple of the guys are no longer friends due to something that happened between their wives....Life moves on but the memories will always be there
