Thrill of Fire

There's something about a fireworks show that thrills you.

The booming launch of a shell, a thooomph! that puts you on the edge of your seat, waiting.

Then the wait. You know, in general, what to expect - but what will it look like?

BOOM! The shell bursts, an eruption of light. Fast-burning fireflies fly, glow, and then fade - setting the stage for the next one.

It's the best part of the Fourth.

  1. You think that its cool in pictures and on TV. Try seeing it in person. It was one of the best firework shows that I have ever seen. Mind you I missed the closing cerimonies of the olympics becuase I was working. any way great show great parade. The forth in DC was incredible. 500,000 people on the mall watching the fireworks. Summer is almost over though, which is too bad.
