4th of July

There were BIG plans for this year's 4th of July but it got down-graded and eventually cancelled. Which was fine. The BIG plan would have been great but it did involve a certain amount of risk that involved a good amount of pyrotechnics, chance for some heavy fines if not arrests and well... that's it. Truthfully, I am getting way too old for that sort of thing. So, I spent this year's 4th with some friends. We had a potluck dinner/bbq then we walked over a few blocks where we watched the fireworks display by the City of Cerritos.
The city closes a few blocks of Bloomfield Avenue for a street festival. They have booths for games and information by some of the city's organizations. There is a bandstand in front of the library and a band performs for the crowd. Then as soon as it gets dark enough they have a fireworks display at the Cerritos High School baseball field. Afterwards, we headed back to the house for dessert.

I tried to photograph fireworks going off behind my house this year (my attempts posted on my blog). But looking at your shots--it must be nice to have a fancy schmancy camera ...

(Sounds of simmering envy in the background.)
