EVEN NOW; WITH A THOUSAND LITTLE VOYAGES UNDER MY BELT.
I STILL FEEL A MEMORIAL CHILL ON CASTING OFF.

ANNUAL THOMAS EDISON FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS PARADE & FIREWORKS is a huge deal here. They kick off the event with fireworks on the river at 7:15pm then the grand lighted parade begins and goes on for a couple of hours winding it's way through downtown. They were expecting 200,000 and we were planning on being spectators but happy hour turned into hours of happy and must consume food right now became a priority. We continue to forget our pledge we have in the neighborhood back home "Friends don't let friends drink without eating" and let me tell you from my own personal experience - pizza crust does not qualify as a meal. Here are some shots of the fireworks taken from the back of Broulee.
