10:00PM FIREWORKS Extravaganza
IT SEEMS EVERY YEAR IT GETS BIGGER AND BIGGER. YOU'RE BEST BET IS TO GET THERE FAIRLY EARLY AND FIND YOU A SPOT AND CAMP FOR A BIT. THERE IS PLENTY OF THINGS TO DO. I LOVE SHOOTING THE FIREWORKS HERE FOR AS YOU KNOW THE REFLECTIONS OFF THE PONDS ARE AWESOME. NOT SURE IF EVERYBODY ACTUALLY WANTS TO "MEET UP" OR JUST GO ON YOUR OWN, ONCE IT GETS DARK IT'S KIND OF HARD FINDING PEOPLE. THIS JUST MIGHT BE FOR YOUR INFORMATION ONLY.
