All-Star fireworks after midnight? Minneapolis residents miffed

"I was a Little upset." said LaTeshia "The fireworks drowned out the gunshot noise.

That's because the bright, noisy fireworks weren't launched until around 12:20 a.m. Tuesday, and lasted nearly 15 minutes, according to a reporter at the event.

People jolted from their sleep took to social media to register complaints.

The invitation-only gala was scheduled to start after the Home Run Derby at Target Field, which organizers projected would be around 10 p.m.

But rain delayed the Derby by an hour. It's unclear what time organizers had originally planned to shoot the fireworks.

Several residents who complained on Twitter used the hashtag "bragmpls," which Mayor Betsy Hodges' office introduced earlier Monday to encourage citizens to boast about Minneapolis.

"NOT SLEEPING NOT BRAGGING #bragMPLS," wrote @JulieTilsen.

Muderapolis gets pretty much whatever they want. They control the Legislature and got 4 AM drinking, so they can get as many rich bastards drunk as possible. A late nigh fireworks, they get what they want. With all the gunfire in Muderapolis who would know there were fireworks?

Avoid Mpls like the plague!!

I just thought it was my rude neighbor who comes home from the bar at 2AM and has been firing off fireworks since the 4th of July.

However it is spun into the greatest game in history!!

It was nothing but a Deter retirement party!

And Minnesota taxpayers funded the entire fiasco!

The rich bar, hotel, eateries made out like bandits, the rich get richer at the expense of taxpayers.

I'm not rich and my dog is afraid of fireworks and thunder. Sometimes I'm afraid she will have a heart attack!
