This past Friday, a photo friend and I went to a fireworks show at Malcolm W. Martin Memorial Park in East St. Louis. Only the press were allowed up on the overlook, so we found a high spot on the hill and set up for the night.
Even though we didn’t get up on the overlook, I think we found a good vantage spot, including for watching a fire juggler before the fireworks started. I have about 10
war wounds bug bites to show for it, but I still had a blast (pun intended) watching the show.
I even caught a dragon cloud slinking away before the fireworks started.
