This year, we watched the fireworks spring to life sitting at the edge of the railroad tracks that parallel Spring Garden Street. We were close enough to the Coliseum to enjoy the show, yet far enough away to avoid the traffic jam at the end of the night. The group that chose the same location was quiet and friendly. One young man shared his truck bed with a family that did not bring chairs. When an especially bright firework would explode, its reflection on the railroad tracks was fabulous.
In Greensboro, the weather was lovely today. All the festive events in the Piedmont area were spared rain, as well as triple digit weather. However, Wednesday is a hard day for a holiday, as, not many people are in the position to take a five day weekend. For those of us still in town, this Friday is First Friday- a great way to continue your July festivities.
