The Wolfeboro (New Hampshire), 4th of July fireworks, as ever were good. As good as you can get with hand fired fireworks I would think — though I could be wrong. From what we can see all the fireworks are set off by three intrepid souls carrying flares and scuttling, like beatles, from one pod to another. As always the Wolfeboro fireworks were much better than those of Alton the previous night — but that is to expected, Wolfeboro being one of the wealthiest towns in the State.
Good crowd and LOTS of boats (especially in contrast to Alton, the night before).
We sat, as ever, on the grass bank, in Brewster, right across from the field where the fireworks are set off. It was the most crowded that we have experienced. This time, after last year’s fiasco, we parked at Huggins Hospital and walked. Getting back on Rte 28 was a piece of cake, so I suspect this will become the new norm.
Unlike Alton, which started late, Wolfeboro, started right on time at 9:30pm … with some folks even having a countdown to 9:30 which proved to be spot on. That was cool. The show lasted 26-minutes. So, it was all good.
I will never rate a public firework display as even been a total disaster — provided they get at least a few up in the sky. In my book all firework shows are ‘good’ by definition, though some, of course, are much better than others, and you are unlikely to get a truly spectacular one in New Hampshire outside of the BIG cities and Jaffery (the home of ‘Atlas Fireworks’).
