  1. No mention of fireworks in THursdays program. Would be nice if these things were advertised and not kept secret

    1. I called Harborfest and the guy who answered the phone said the fireworks last night ARE NOT affiliated with Harborfest and they do not know who is responsible. If anyone does find out who put these on… Harborfest would appreciate a phone call. I guess they have been getting a bunch of calls about the fireworks not being on the schedule.

  2. Me too! Very disappointed, just came back in from sitting out back and crawled into bed when they started. I would have hung out longer to see them. 🙁

  3. Ditto to above, Very disappointing, that is the BEST place to see fireworks–needs more info ahead of time.
