A couple of weeks ago, I promised pictures of the Fun Fest fireworks. I'm finally following through on my promise. :) Nelson had read about a camera technique for taking photos of fireworks, and he tested it out that evening. He took 154 pictures! I don't think Blogger would be very happy with me if I posted that many pics, so I've been trying to pick some of the clearer shots. They still don't do it justice--nothing beats being there in person. But I think he did a great job capturing the colorful displays.
I was actually pleasantly surprised by the Fun Fest fireworks. Most towns spend their "budget" on the 4th of July show, and if there's an event meriting fireworks at some other time it tends to be pretty lame. Not so with Kingsport and Fun Fest! I was expecting a short, cheesy event, but that's not what we got. It was a great display, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Sarah especially liked the fireworks that made a smiley face. :) If you live in a big metropolis, you probably wouldn't be impressed, but we had a great time watching a surprisingly good show.
So here are some highlights.
