I hope that all Canadians are taking a moment to celebrate the creation of our young contry in 1867. I also hope that your municipalities aren’t planning such a boneheaded family-unfriendly thing as starting the fireworks display at 10:40pm (or later). I hope that they plan it for a more reasonable time, like 9:30 or 10:00 when it is sufficiently dark to have an excellent display. With it being Tuesday night and with work in the morning, I have decided that my young children are going to go to bed at a reasonable hour and will miss the fireworks display. I hope that the city of Fredericton plans its events with all citizens in mind next year. I may miss them myself this year. Too bad.
And, they’re over. Apparently, from the noise, the fireworks started pretty much on time. Now, 20 minutes later, its all over. Wham, bam, thank you ma’am. I didn’t go down to see them, BTW. I hope that John got a few shots with his camera. It would have taken longer to walk down to the river than to see the fireworks. So, to add to my wish list for next year, I’d like to see a choreographer consulted and see if Fredericton can, for once, have an impressive display (its not the quantity – its the presentation).
