So I went to go see the fireworks in Monroe like I have for the last 15 years. Went to park where I always do down from the old factory across from the park where they shoot off the fireworks. What did I find? EVERY SINGLE ROAD TO THE PLACE BLOCKED OFF!!! There is no point in going and parking up at Rite Aid. You can't see them very well. The ONLY good place to park is across the road from the park. And this year it was off limits.

Why?!? What was the point in ruining the best place to go to? I guess next year I won't go. After all, what is the point if you can't see the fireworks?

Way to drop the ball and ruin the fun Monroe. I am sick to death of these police state tactics.

We NEED a revolution like yesterday.

Anywhere on the Skyway is good. They blocked people from going onto Manetta Mills property because the owner had some damage last year and complained. You could park on the street behind it and out on the next street as long as traffic could get by. They used to let us park at Jaycee Park but they stopped that too.

I parked on a street behind Benton Heights School and got to see the whole show. It was close enough that we could see the rockets going up and the explosions really well. A big tree blocked just a little and we couldn't see them come off of the ground but it was a good spot.

If you to a Charlotte Knights game on Saturday night you get to see a great fireworks show after the ballgame. You are so close to the fireworks that you damn near have to look straight up to see the rocket's red glare and the bombs bursting in air. Definitely a better show than fighting the traffic to see Monroe's pissy little firecracker show. And also the chicks at the Knights game were their Daisy Dukes up in their goodie box!!!!!! I had wood all Knight
