Best Fireworks Show You'll Ever See!!!

This saturday night, the 16th of July, come to Rewey, WI for the best fireworks show..
They hold it this weekend every year, and it's absolutely intense!!

I shoot rapid fire, high power rifle matches with 20 guys shooting 30-06 rifles as fast as they can get back on the target, and the concussion from that doesn't bother me a bit..

The last five minutes of this show actually had me uncomfortable from the constant concussion of the shells going off.. It's amazing!!!

It's free, and a great show... Just figured I'd get it out there for someone in the area who was looking for something to do..

Nice video. Fireworks are still banned here as well as the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles due to the extreme drought. So I enjoyed the video and as a bonus this adds to my post count.

The video is some kid's off of Youtube from the 2010 show.. This year's was very similar.. The funny thing is, if you ask anyone who hasn't been to the show where Rewey is, nobody will be able to tell you..
It's a tiny town of less than 300, just off a county road that I ride fairly often.. Put it this way... It's so small, it only has one tavern.. That, in Wisconsin, is tiny!!

But every year the fire department sponsors this huge show that draws in a few thousand.. It's never advertised, either.. (other than by the fireworks companies that sponsor the show).

I've got a video of last year's show somewhere, and need to edit it and get it up on Youtube. The problem is, when you're at the park, everything's going off right over your head and then there's lower stuff going off that you can't get in the camera..

Heck, even just sitting there you can't get everything all in because it's so huge!! Like I said, it really can't be explained.. It's that big!!
