    I'm confused as to what this has to do with New Jersey. Do they call it the Garden State fireworks show? Or did you mean Golden State?

    - Getting there 8 hours before the event to secure a primo spot to view the fireworks (Plus who knows how much time in spent in traffic)
    - $50 for lawn chairs
    - $60 for gas and tolls
    - $100 for food, soda and beer
    - 30 seconds of fireworks - PRICELESS

    Garden State Fireworks is the company that actually does the fireworks part (like Grucci).

    Have to admit, though....seeing three giant pillars of fire in the bay plus a sound similar to a shuttle launch has gotta be a once in a lifetime experience.

    This is what 20 seconds of the Macy's fireworks is supposed to look like, and then they repeat it for an hour.

    Tip of the hat to the owner of Garden State Fireworks who says they're going to put on a do-over in San Diego to make up for it.

    But, also a wag of the finger to him for blaming a "computer virus" for the problem. Just admit one of your guys screwed up.
