You Are Welcome, New Kensington.

If you were one of the many people that got to enjoy
the beautiful fireworks display in New Kensington this past
Saturday...you are welcome.

Now, you may be saying to yourself...

"Self, why are the wonderfully entertaining people at the Newk
claiming to be responsible for the fireworks I so enjoyed this past weekend?"

If that is in fact what you are asking yourself, here is an explanation.

A while back, we went on a bit of a rant about the city's plans for no
fireworks this Independence Day.

It seemed to be set in stone.

And then...something changed. There were whispers about a possible
display to be shot off somewhere other than along the Parnassus Freeway.

Those whispers got louder and louder as more and more hits to our little website, began
to resonate through the honorable chambers of city hall.

Fearing an uprising bigger than the one when King Kone decided to close up for good,
city officials and some volunteers made the dream come alive.

And if you were in the 15068 on the 4th, you now know what dreams
look like when they come to life...


Yes, fireworks.
The same type of fireworks that we've all seen for the past 100 years or so.

Bet you never realized that dreams looked like regular old fireworks.

Seriously though, we probably didn't have anything to do with the show.
But that won't stop us from taking all the credit.

So again, from the bottom of our hearts...you are welcome, New Kensington.
May you remember those fireworks for the rest of your lives.

"Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream."
- George W. Bush
