Some of the whistling missiles are being shot at a 45deg angle, they had me doing a duck and cover thing. I spent a long time in the military, I don't have ptsd but I almost hit the dirt after a few volleys.
I lived in NIag.Falls for a while. The fireworks show is lame but hearing them echo down the gorge is interesting. My ex-wife was afraid of heights. She didn't want to go over the bridge, she thought the fireworks weakened the structure.
Fireworks are legal in Pennsylvania, the border is 90mi from Buffalo. There are billboards advertising firework stands across the PA/NY border: "Fireworks for sale, First exit after border.".
