Fireworks were pretty constant for about an hour.
Getting ready....the firecrackers came in rolls like garden hoses. See the orbs gathering for the festivities?
More orbs around the firecrackers.
Last year they hung these from the 2nd story balconies....this year, just on the sidewalk.
Starting off slow, and already the air is filled with smoke
Watch where you're going. Lots of fingers in ears....you had to be there to understand how loud it got. Crazy!
Bill, Olga and Corinne enjoy the spectacle.
Yes, they also used the street as a place to set of the firecrackers and also the big ones. Saw some risky tosses.
And the orbs are still there...hanging around the firecracker remnants.....this photo taken a couple blocks from the previous ones.
sparklers and setting off lamps from inside the shop....I believe this is a massage parlor.
This shopkeeper is cleaning up quickly. Some do, some don't.
all the red is just the leftovers of the firecrackers.....it looked this way looking both directions....and there were several blocks around the 'city square'. Fun night.
