Does anyone know when the actual fireworks start - is it 8pm or later?
Usually around 9:45 after it gets dark
Why at 8pm, the sun is still up. this city is weak, man...
The CONCERT starts at 8pm. Fireworks starts at 9:30-ish
Thank you to Shoreline for the great fireworks show last night! The fireworks were spectacular, and really made our 4th of July. We truly appreciate having this wonderful event in our hometown.
(My only wish is that the surrounding businesses would let people park in their EMPTY lots. Not very patriotic or neighborly of them to make families with small children hike miles down Shoreline Blvd in the dark)
One of the best things about Mountain View! Our kids look forward to this every year...
The only thing that would make the 4th even cooler would be a parade or event downtown. For a daytime activity, we often go to Redwood City on the train. We'd rather stay here.
This event brings neighborhoods together. We had lots of neighbors join us for an impromptu viewing on our street since we have an unobstructed vantage point. It was really nice; walk outside your front door when you hear the first BOOMS and walk back inside when the finale is over. Perfect for people who don't want to deal w/ crowds or have young ones who can't stay up that late.
Thank you, Mountain View, for continuing this great tradition. We look forward to watching the fireworks every year. This year, we even went to the concert too, which was fantastic. When we have kids, we look forward to sharing this fun event with them.
Anyone know if you can see the fireworks at Shoreline or Great America from Moffet Field?
For all of you stuck with me in ludicrous traffic to go three blocks after the (wonderful!) show, know that it will look like that every day when the city does all the development they want in Shoreline (and with not a penny for the schools as a result of the additional property tax)
fireworks were great but people driving would actually stop
in the middle of the road to see the fireworks. we seen almost 4 accidents as people 'stopped' and the cars behind them tooting their horns for them to keep moving - just amazing.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
