Wow, I thought there were a lot of fireworks around on Christmas Eve, but as John Donaghy pointed out in the comments below, that was nothing compared to New Years! Just about every block (except ours with the convent on it) had someone who was shooting off big ones, and almost every house had people shooting off smaller ones. It was absolutely amazing. We watched from up on a balcony, and I tried to get video of it just to give an idea….but it didn’t turn out too awesome. Most of the big fireworks you see in it are between 200yds and 3/4 mile away, but we could see them going all the way to the horizon.
