Some came prepared for the pre firework show. The firework show was really worth the wait. We especially enjoyed the reflections on the lake and the crowd’s appreciation.

Amazing sunsets and twinkling stars. We could also pull in some TV reception so enjoyed a show on the monitor. We have not played with all of the features yet so like the opportunity to figure things out.
