Villisca Fireworks

We went to the Villisca fireworks show last night, which was amazing! Seriously, I don’t understand how our tiny town can have such a better show than the bigger towns  (looking at you, Red Oak), but hey, I’m not complaining.  

Though the show got interrupted because a bunch of kids snuck up through the corn field into the firing area. They caught about six of them, though the others escaped. I’d like to know where their parents were.

Anyway, here are the mandatory fireworks pics.

You know it was a good show because afterwards it rained ash:

Afterward we came home and lit a few off, though it was late so hubby and the bro wiped out. But it was fun getting to shoot them legally in Iowa.  This is the first year since 1930-something that they’ve been legal. Though we didn’t get the brand we usually buy:

They were ok, but expensive.  Next year we’re going to Missouri to buy them, ha ha! 

Anyway, need to get going. 

Have a raining ash kinda day!
