Re: 4th of July... my town stinks!
I remember being at Middletown's All American Weekend one year and they shot them WAY too close to the crowd. There were 4 & 5" morters hitting the the ground and the crowd, it was insane. My band was part of the entertainment so we all stayed on the stage because it had a metal roof over it. The empty shells hitting the metal roof were almost as loud as the explosions. It was weird.
