Dear PoP: Were Neighborhood Fireworks Better This Year?

“Dear PoP,

So, I’m wondering if you or anyone else noticed that there seemed to be a lot more fireworks yesterday than in previous years, and certainly more than last year. I don’t mean the kind you set off on the street or whatever, but the big kind. My husband and I watched from our roof deck, and we have mostly a northern view and I swear, I saw a lot more displays this year. It also seemed that the casual person setting off pretty impressive almost-professional-grade (like, it couldn’t have been legal for them to have them) fireworks was a lot more than in previous years. I was wondering if anyone else noticed it and has any theories as to why? Did a local state relax some laws? Did some fireworks fall off a truck? Were the prices of fancy ones significantly lower this year?”

How would folks compare this year’s neighborhoods displays from previous years?
