Those would be for a fireworks show.

The Naked Science series on Nat Geo recently aired extremely interesting episode on fireworks show. It is actually a lot of electronics as well. After watching the fireworks show on 4th of July, I was wondering if we can have similar shows in India. It would be extremely difficult as, like everything else in the US, even these shows today encompass century of learning and evolution.

May be you have already watched one or many, but if not, I will strongly encourage you to go and watch one whenever the opportunity presents. From what I have heard, the Disney weekend fireworks show and Baltimore New Year show are great - apart from the other popular ones.

@IB - Wow, beautiful pics there; yes I remember Aspen for its snow & skiing from the famous movie Dumb & Dumber.

RMNP is also as beautiful as Aspen

Any idea why a public transport is encouraged between 9 to 5? Two things that I can think off...
1. Revenue
2. Control pollution

Anything apart from this?

PS - So you took 7 days off from work is it?

Thanks for an interesting travelogue. I had lived in Denver Colorado for around 3.5 years and this brought back some memories.

BINGO...you got it...

On July 5th when we were touring RMNP, we reached the west-end city Grand Lake and just before the night they had a fireworks show & some workers were clearing the stuff. I didn't know what these stuff is and spoke one worker. He said they are used to fire the fireworks. I am attaching more pics.

Being in US from last 5+ years I had opportunity to enjoy fireworks at different places during different occasions including Disney's.

Exactly, those two are the primary reasons I can think off.

I would say reducing fossil fuel consumption is also a primary objective.
