3 Mile Harbor, 7/12 fireworks show
I watched this fireworks display (as I have for about 10+ years) from the roof of my sisters house which is near the fireworks barge in 3 Mile Harbor last Saturday night. There were a lot of boats in the harbor that came (and presumably have been coming) to this event (for many years). From the roof we could also see fireworks being displayed off in the distance in New London, CT. The show was a bit short (about 20 minutes) but a pretty masterful Garrucci display, IMHO.
My question to you Sailnutters that were there is what happened to the usual honking of air horns after the show stopped? It used to get pretty chaotic after the shows ended in years past with boaters blasting their air horns and shooting off some of their own 'works'. This year there was barely a peep out of the anchored boats assembled. Did the harbor master issue a warning that people would be boarded if the used the air horn or shot off fireworks? OR, is this because there were probably a few less power boats there? I hoped the reason was the latter but from trolling this (and other) boards for a long time I know that sailboaters come from all stripes.
What was your impression if you were there?
