...get out and watch the Saturday night fireworks while they're still staging them..

I imagine this Saturday will be the last fireworks display for the season.

I believe that is correct and it'll be a full house assuming the weather cooperates. Its definitely worth the effort IMO.


We got there last Saturday at 5:30 to 'claim a spot' with blankets and chairs and there were probably already 1000+ people sprawled on the viewing field. We found a good spot, put our stuff down, wandered through the gardens for an hour then had the picnic dinner and returned about 8:30. When the area is completely packed I'd estimate they can accommodate 3-4000 people.

Last summer I had the very good fortune of arriving moments before the fireworks started and getting an amazing spot in the VIP section. The secret to my success? Attending with a BG employee. It really does pay to know people in high places.

Looking at heading there for our staff party, but that won’t happen for a few weeks yet. Usually we head out last week of September. I think it’s probably still pretty nice.
