July 2nd

Today was the 4th of July celebration. It was pretty well done except there was zero line control at the free food stands. And they were all next to each other in a narrow street, meaning there was one continuous line from one end to the other. I wanted to be polite, but since I refused to go hungry I forced my way into a few lines.

The fireworks were very well done, although I would love to hear them with an actual symphony instead of a recorded performance. I miss the old days with Peter Nero and the Philly Pops.
