No 4th fireworks in Madison

Postby swimmingupstream » Thu Jul 18, 2013 11:22 am

I think you should have to leave the state of The People's Republic of Madison and enter the U.S.A. to see fireworks in real American cities like Monona and Sun Prarie.

I am positive the professional activists in Madison agree with me and will make Soggy regret he ever proposed to shoot off fireworks in the middle of the lake.

I think the new plan is to have the fireworks on International Workers Day, comrade.

Don't go to MKE because they shoot them off on the 3rd. Fucking anarchists. Every last one of them.

I think that's why the cities do it on different days. They don't want to compete with the outlying fireworks. Neighborhood fireworks tend to attract people from the 'hood and not many outsiders. They aren't really competing with each other as the center city fireworks would.

But hey, some people just need a reason to fucking complain.

Yeah, it's kind of nice on the fourth, I think the many of the county parks have fireworks, plus each of the suburbs. From where we watched the Wauwatosa fireworks we could also see the Washington park and West Allis fireworks. And it didn't take 2 hours to get back to our car and get home.

I'd much rather have the fireworks on the 3rd, that way I can spend the 4th hungover and with family. Doesn't work so well when fireworks are on the 4th and I have to work early on the 5th.

Looks like the Mallards are sponsoring July 4th fireworks at Warner next year, or trying to.
