The fireworks started way too early and they blew. There was a rain date scheduled for sunday night but Rome had to let them off around 8:30pm. Poor excuse for fireworks. Hopefully one day this city will return to its old days... nah it never will too much welfare and no jobs.

You are right; city sux - boring, nothing to do unless you are a druggie or drunk. Very depressing place to live.

Not City of Rome function. Rome Chamber sub committee event. Sponsored by Rome businesses and chamber members.

You jerks will complain about anything!!!! It's a free event, that takes countless hours of volunteerism, hours of set up, etc. it rained, get over it.... They still had it, so deal!!!! If you don't like it than don't go.... It's that easy.......

Go live, work, play somewhere else if you don't like it.

Enough with your Classless, ignorant rants.....
Just sayin..

Another free event and you idiots still cry. Do you have a clue the money and time spent putting them together? The city set them off early because it was going to downpour. Shut up with the bitching or get off your fat ,lazy asses and take care of it yourself next time.

Why are people so negative. I just don't understand what is wrong with some of the people in this town. A few bad bunch have to ruin all the good constantly. It rained, does the mayor and the city of Rome control the weather now too? What have you done lately to bring good to this town?

I think the reason some have an issue, is there was a rain date set, but not used. ALOT of KIDS got upset over it, so some parents are just frustrated because their kids were upset.

I have a son with autism. He kept insisting that those were the practice fireworks. There is no reasoning with him sometimes. The only way to get him to believe us was to get in the car at our scheduled time of 9:15 and drive down there. Then he declared that he was going to have them all arrested for doing them early. People who don't deal with this on a daily basis just don't understand.
