We went to our town's fireworks display last night. They were in a park on the water. A concert preceded the fireworks. The crowd was large, but we saw many people we knew. The kids played in the playground, played tag with friends and then, when it got dark, they sat mesmerized by the fireworks.
There's something very wonderful about watching the rapt faces of your children as they are illuminated by the beautiful lights exploding in the sky.
