No more 4th of July fireworks shows at Pillar Point Harbor

Anyway, fireworks scare me !

Half Moon Bay Review/Julia Reis, 6/27/13.  "Fourth of July fireworks fizzle for second straight year."  American Legion abandons effort to host show.

....   “We’ve decided to disband the fireworks effort,” Resch said. “I can’t imagine we would do it again after two years of non-support from the local business community. There were too many volunteer hours for no reward.”

....  The cancellation of the fireworks show due to a lack of funds is a situation not unique to Half Moon Bay. Small towns and big cities across the country have had to cancel their shows over the last few years in cost-cutting measures, from Glendale, Ariz., to Chicago, Ill.   Read article.
