Boo Hoo! Being a tradition doesn't mean it has to continue. I went a couple of times when I was younger and dumber. I wasn't awe-struck by any means. White Lion had better fireworks at their concerts. (That's bad. I know.) What I'm saying is this; there is no really good place to watch the fireworks unless you live on the bluff in Sheffield or somewhere close to downtown Florence. Otherwise, you have to push your way through dirty, smelly morons, park illegally on a bridge, or get in a boat and battle all the drunk boaters on the lake. Thanks, but no thanks. I'll stick to spending some quality time with my family.
