Even the drone ones are getting boring too. HA! I think I'm getting old. Meanwhile eleventy billion kids were in a culdesac near my house firing off black cats for HOURS.

how do you not get bored really quick by that. it's literally never different any year.

The rich town we live next to had an amazing display last night. I’m typically not too into fireworks but go for the kids, but this was by far the best display I’ve ever seen.

I like the big professional displays. Amateur hour is just boom boom BOOM boom. My kids just did sparklers that night and 3 packages of snaps yesterday (they liked trying to make different noise patterns). Washington is in bad fire danger so if we had been back home, we wouldn't have done anything.

I'm thinking of the South Park episode where the hunting guys drive to Mexico to get some sweet patriotic illegal fireworks

Honestly, if you live near a Native American reservation, the fireworks are so much worse. I never had anything like this nonsense in Chicago. Out in Washington if you don't have a mortar ready for every Seahawks touchdown you aren't a real 12th man.

(I hate the Seahawks because of their fans.)

In AZ, you can't throw a rock without hitting a fireworks pop up store.  Also, you have Native American reservations and Mexico across the border.  No shortage of fireworks in the hottest and driest state in the US.  Makes sense to me, because forest fires aren't enough to keep fire fighters busy, right? :shrug:

We're in big fire danger here so I was dreading the weekend but it was tame! A few big blasts on Saturday, then a number of celebrations on Sunday night but it didn't sound like a war zone and it did not last all weekend. Pleasantly surprised. And all our big shows were canceled

I like fireworks but really only once a year for a short weekend. On July 4 once it gets dark enough to see them which is usually getting near 9:30. Then they should be done by 10 or so.
