Does anyone know if they allow grills? I'm doubting it. I'm taking some "oj" and "lemonade" though.

Fireworks show up by the airport. They have concerts and events that go on all day. After dark, they do a fireworks show set to the music of the Springfield Symphony.

It's fun. I think there were over 60,000 people there last year. Lines for the potty get kinda long, but not too bad. I'll see if I can find a good link.

I'm not fond of crowds myself, but it's fun. The only really aggrivating part is trying to leave when it's over.

I'll do my usual 4th celebration. I always buy one of those plastic champagne bottles with the confetti in them. That's it.

Lots of good photo ops I imagine.

You Springtown ****ers are about the most worthless bunch of no-showing bastidges I've ever run across.

There are exceptions, Jim Nasle-e-um and Jen-nAy among them, but the rest of you slacking sticks-in-the-mud are disgraceful party-gimps... :shake:

When was it you were coming to town again?

I showed up at one when I wasn't even on the bb yet. I think Jimnasium was there. Not for sure who it was. I met up with some people I knew and hung out with them.

Let's examine this Firefall issue. 95 degree day and 60,000 people. I think I'll pass.

For the 25th anniversary, it certainly lacked luster. The fireworks were awesome, as usual. It just wasn't the same this year. I t seemed like there was less to do.

Some member of the Park Board at the time, I guess.

Didn't I hear you cry this morning, didn't I feel you weep?
Teardrops flowin' down on me, like rivers in my sleep.
And in my dream of laughter, you came creepin' with your fears.
Telling me your sorrows, in the tracings of your tears.

Thats a strange way to tell me you love me
When your sorrow is all I can see
If you just want to cry to somebody, don't cry to me, no
Don't cry to me, no

Didn't I hear your voice this morning, didn't you call my name?
I heard you whisper softly, but the words were never plain.
And in your dream of darkness, I came shinin' like the sun.
Waiting for the laughter, but the laughter never comes.

That's a strange way to tell me you love me
When your sorrow is all i can see
If you just want to cry to somebody, dont cry to me, no
Dont cry to me, no

Didn't you feel alone this morning, didn't you need a friend?
And in your darkest hour, you came runnin' back again

That's a strange way to tell me you love me (x3)
