Yes, Those Were Fireworks on Main Street

If you happened to be on the corner of Main and Washington Street Friday evening at about 8:30 pm, you may have noticed a very brief fireworks display launched from the roof of the building at the Southwest corner of the intersection.

You weren't imagining pyrotechnics.  This was a test and preview of rooftop fireworks that will be featured as part of the Middnight on Main celebration this coming New Year's Eve.

The fireworks vendor, and the fire department wanted to test the viability of a fireworks launch from a downtown rooftop, and the test was successful.  The display for New Year's Eve will be much longer and more elaborate.

At the Middnight on Main celebration the fireworks display will take place at 6PM so that families can celebrate the event together.
