Happy Independence Day!  We’re kicking it off a few hours early here in the Electric City.  Scranton is the only place I’ve ever been where people shoot off fireworks all year round.  Literally right out of their yards, well within the city limits, a few random ones each week, sometimes a small batch.  Nobody seems to care.

But when the time comes to put on a show, this town is solid – they know what they’re doing and they don’t mess around.  This was one of the best fireworks shows I’ve seen in a long time, hands down.  More photos to enjoy after the break.  And if you’re planning on playing with some of these yourself over the long weekend, be careful!
