Last weekend out nation celebrated the 4th of July, Independence Day holiday over a traditional three day weekend.
No such event would be complete without a fireworks show, and this year the place to be in Battle Creek was at the Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival at the W.K. Kellogg airfield. This show was by far the largest in the area, and when viewed from the airport, it was nothing short of spectacular.
This year I attended the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival to see the featured fireworks show that I have heard so much about over the years, and I brought my camera. I filmed the show in two parts, and could have merged the videos into one, but decided to keep them separate when I posted them on YouTube. I suppose I was concerned that people would not watch it if it was too long. However, I have learned this does not seem to be the case when it comes to fireworks shows.
Historically, I think that everyone loves fireworks to some greater of lesser degree. This would of course account for the fact that shows like this draw huge crowds all over the nation every year, and I do not think the tradition would remain if if a majority of people did not like them.
Anyway, I have included my video here on this blog post of the first part of last weekends show. I hope you enjoy it.
