Poll: What Did You Think Of The Fireworks?

Did Tewksbury's Fourth of July fireworks display live up yo your expectations?

Tewksbury's annual Fourth of July celebration culminated with a concert by the Siracusa Project and a fireworks display at the Saunders Recreation Complex.

Due to approaching thunderstorms, the fireworks went off at 9 p.m., rather than 9:30 p.m.

We want to know what you thought about this year's fireworks.

Could have cared less . We went to my dad's house the night before ( July 3rd ) in Wilmington and they are the best around !! Didn't even bother going to Tewksbury's display . By the sounds of things in the above posts, we didn't miss much !!!

Well, all I can say is that all I had to do was see the look on my children's faces. They were so excited and had the best time watching the fireworks. So in my opinion, it was a success! And we went to Wilmington the night before and had a great time there too! My kids are too young to judge which display was "better", they just enjoyed hanging outside and being able to watch the fireworks from our yard. That's what was most important and most satisfying for this resident! Thank you to all who had a hand in the 4th of July festivities! Our family had a wonderful holiday!

i agree that the decision to start the fireworks early was the right one. I also was more than a bit nervous with Mother Nature's "fireworks" were going off behind us. But I had faith that our Town Officials, Fire & Police were keeping up with the weather alerts and it's possible issues. There WAS a SEVERE thunderstorm warning issued by our Natl Weather Service for our area that night. And even tho it looked like the storms would just miss us, (and they did thank gosh!) other areas were not so lucky. Having personally experienced a storm come up from seemingly out of nowhere, with NO warning, and see a lightening bolt just miss my husband and my son's baseball team-I know first hand how fast the weather can turn, as I am sure a lot of other people have too. The celebration at the Hatch Shell with half a million people was suspended also for the same cell, and 4 people in New England were struck by lightening in the path of that same storm! I was glad the events' organizers erred on the side of safety. Having attended all the fireworks displays Tewksbury has put on since I moved here in 1994, I am sure that the original "show" would have just great. An Andover Selectmen told me that night that Atlas had put thier fireworks show on in Andover the night before and it was fantastic. NO complaints here, just thanks to all who helped organize and put on the entire 4th of July events. Susan Duffy

I'd like to reiterate my previous statement that jerry made the right call going early. I think most people (here and otherwise) understand the safety concerns and appreciate how the concern was handled. Mother nature is a fickle woman!
