I want to know which show is the most expensive? It seems like when it comes to fireworks, it is all about how much money you have to spend. That said, the Lawrence show is often pretty boring since there is about a minute between each firework!

We've gone to the Perry Lake display several years now and it is pretty nice. We like to sit on the dam road and watch them shoot them over the water.

Perry isn't doing fireworks this year--no money.

Might do Eudora because I love Classic Revolution! My philanthropic group booked them for our Adopt-A-Family and Aphrodisiac Parties. They rocked the house and blew people away! It was awesome!

One thing's for sure, neighborhoods in Lawrence will be like a ghost town once again. I guess people just don't enjoy caps and sparklers all that much. Thanks City!
