I am not capable of doing justice to the midnight scene in our local square. Since dark at about 4:30 P.M. we had been hearing explosions and seeing occassional bursts of color out our 3rd floor window overlooking a small park.
Before midnight we went to the square around the corner where there were many small groups of people setting off their fireworks. Something was happening continously in all directions. Not the grandeur of the professional display down on the Valtava River but very impressive. Truly a community celebration!
