Best firework show we have ever seen…
Monday evening our little lake community put on the best firework show the four of us have ever seen. Every year our community, as well as others, always put on a private firework show at the beach. Usually the street next to our community puts on a wonderful show. Well this year Mitiwanga out did them!
The night started off with the perfect sunset. It kind of set the mood and created the perfect backdrop for the events ahead.
The lake was filled with people. I have never in my life seen so many people sitting on our lake front. One family had a table set up and were making cotton candy for the kids. Another family had a face painting station, where high school girls were painting all the younger children’s faces. Families were sitting in chairs and on blankets, barely leaving any open grass on the lakefront. Children were rolling down the hill and running around. Mostly you just saw the flash of a glow stick running by. Our local neighbor was sitting on his deck with music playing from large speakers. It was truly a time all families came together to enjoy the evening!
My parents opted to watch the fireworks from the front porch so they could be home with Abby 🐶 so she wouldn’t be scared. Us kids went to the beach so we could enjoy all the excitement!
In years past, the street next to our community always put on the best show. Ironically it’s a family i grew up with in Berea, Ohio. Small world. Anyways back to the fireworks. So every year we all looked forward to their show. Well this year Mitiwanga showed them up! They went first from their pier and it was impressive but we quickly realized that was just the appetizer to the main course our community was ready to put before us! The first pier in Mitiwanga lasted about 20 minutes straight and WOW it was non stop amazing bursts in the sky. Everything from sizzlers to the booms you felt inside your chest! Just when we though we had reached the grand finale, a second pier started up their show! What??? It was another 10 minute show of amazing fireworks. We sat and watched fireworks for about 45 minutes straight!!! The best part is when it was over we just walked a few houses down to our parents house!
