Haha, yeah, so many people shoot off fireworks on the 4th, & I'm not sure all of them are aware as to whether or not they're illegal or not. We get a lot of tourists, so I'm thinking they just don't know that they're illegal here 'cause they're legal there. *shrugs* Oh well, as long as no one gets hurt, I don't see a problem.
They only charge on the 4th of July, so it's just a one day thing. xD They only do it because of the large number of people that attend the event, haha. Every other day of the year, it's free parking. Some of the parking lots near the park itself charge for parking as well due to their proximity to the park itself, but yeah.
Oh, wow. My mom & I saw some fireworks the other day when we went to Wawa. Fireworks are illegal here unless you've got permission to shoot them off, so the ones we saw were illegal, but they were nice. xD Except they were a little late, haha.
That sounds nice! I didn't know there were parks that charged for parking there. o.e All the parks here have free parking.
Yeah we went last night (5th) too and found a much better spot than on Thursday. A lot closer and you can see the fireworks better. Pretty close to where they were shot off so it was so loud I could feel the boom in my chest, especially during the finale! It was really nice though.
Yay! My mom & I sort of just drove around the park where they were shooting 'em off, & we found a really good place to see them at for next year too. The park charges $5 to park there, so being able to go elsewhere & park for free is good too, & it's such a good view, it's perfect. ♥
