I agree 100%. We have sat at the same spot every year, as soon as the fireworks started we left. They might as well had sparklers and snakes. Last year the boom was so loud it would shake your inners. Neck hurt after from looking up. We sat there tonight for 45 mins than left. My jimmies are really rustled.

We were in our normal spot in the coliseum parking lot. Could barely see them over the VFW building. The finale was closer and was better than the whole show. I guess smokey bear made them move it to a safer spot? Overall the show was lesser than years past, no "flash booms". I guess 30 grand that Briggs spends doesn't go as far as it used to. Maybe they can get another business to chip and make it better.

If you wanted to see great fireworks you should have gone to a bigger place like St. Louis to see the display. If you stay here because you were too lazy to drive somewhere that had a decent budget then why bitch when it isnt that great. This town sucks but get some freakin perspective, it takes money to put on a good show, money this town doesn't have.

Regardless of the quality, everyone should be grateful for what we DID have. With the fire danger so high, we are lucky they offered us any at all. AND that we have an organization like Briggs willing to donate it. Shameful for you all to act this way. The ingratitude in this town is embarrassing.

I agree that we should be thankful we had any show at all, but it was pretty lame compared to the usual show. Really disappointing. Could barely see anything. Should have stayed home.

my kids and I enjoyed the fireworks, thankful to see them this year. We try to find the good in things, and be grateful when some thing is done for us. Which makes us appreciate life!

This town didnt pay for the fireworks display, Briggs and Stratton did. they are a multibillion dollar company and all that they could do was go to the Hastings parking lot and get last years leftovers for this years show! I tied a condom around my nuts and saw more stars than I saw at the 2012 fireworks show!!!

You should be grateful they had fireworks this year! I suggest next year, if you are so unhappy with what you saw; why dont you spend 30,000 and put on your own fireworks display!

Because of the dryness they moved the main fireworks to the city dumping area on eastside to shoot off, since it's surrounded by farmland and then the finale was at the usual spot. We were on Main Street in front of train depot and it was perfect for both, the finale was right in front of us over the train depot.

I agree this was probably the worst and shortest of any year, but my kids were happy to see any firework show and the finale was great just really really short this year.

Ummm were I sat the fireworks were fine. Maybe alittle shorter then the other years. But in the paper it said that the fireworks was going to be shot in a different place this year. This is why your disappointed. They were shot in the land field. And the grand finally was shot at ray Clinton park.
