4th of July Fireworks to Return to Erie

Apr 5, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: YourErie

If you've missed Boom over the Bay and the former Old Fashioned 4th of July fireworks display sponsored by Mercyhurst University, there's good news! Jet 24 has learned that there will be fireworks this year and next thanks to the efforts of the Perry 200 group and the Jefferson Society.

What an extraordinary waste of money.

How about spending the money to improve city parks and ballfields so kids can have something nice all summer instead of 20 minutes of useless fireworks and the 2 hour traffic jam that goes with it.

Why does it take 2 different civic entities to put this togther? Where is Fred Rush, Joey Donuts, Laura Schaaf and all the rest on this? Aren't they embarrassed that others have to do their jobs?

But in fairness, we get people from Millcreek, Wesleyville, etc coming to watch so why don't these townships pitch in too?

That's like saying everyone from out of town who attends Celebrate Erie should kick in some money. They DO -- they support local merchants. And so do visitors to the Bay and Mhurst. Don't start charging admission to look at the friggin sky.

Getting drunk at bars isn't really supporting local mercants. And it does NOTHING to help defray the costs of these events.
City infrasturcutre, city workers, city property all being used by non-Erieites. Figure out a way to help pay for these things.

You cheap bastards. Stay at home and light sparklers and get smashed. Drink until your sick and keep complaining about nothing. Get a life. There is more out their than fireworks that last 15 to 20 minutes tops.

Sadly though he is absolutely right. The fireworks is a total waste of taxpayer money. Simple minds simple pleasure.
