Kept the boy up waaaaaaaaaay past his bedtime to see the fireworks at Trum Field.  He loved the band and the music, but had to be convinced to take his hands off his eyes when the streetlights went out.  Then his little jaw hit the floor for the next 20 minutes.  He was a bit scared of the finale, but he want to go again next year.  As balsamicdragon says, once is a custom, twice is a tradition.  I'm looking forward to our Somerville fireworks tradition.

I need to consider letting my kids stay up for it. Because I know they would love it. Miss Munchkin kept running onto the landing every 10 minutes to say she'd seen more fireworks. Just local stuff in people's backyards. But, we'll see how next year goes.

Heck, come on down!

It's usually the Thursday before the 4th, so next year it will likely be on July 1st. Somerville's display is pretty good. There were 10,000 people there, but it didn't feel overcrowded.

Keep me posted next year. I'm not sure I want to drag the kids out and then have to drive home, but it sounds awesome.

I guess I grew up spoiled. My beach was in a pretty nice part of Beverly, MA and the community would all pitch in to pay for a really nice hour-long fireworks display. We'd picnic on the beach, and wait for night to fall. :)
