The fence in front of Henry Longfellow's house says it all. Happy Birthday to us! Congress Street, the main artery through the city, has flags hanging from most light poles and tonight at 9PM there will be the annual 'light show' on the Eastern Prom for those who love to wade through large crowds at the top of the Hill and enjoy experiencing a little traffic on your way home. There were between 50,000-60,000 up for it last year. This year, it's sure to be a bit louder in our state too. Why? The sale of fireworks, as of January 1, 2012, is legal in the state. Fun no longer has to be 'illegally imported' from neighboring state New Hampshire and beyond. So, emergency rooms at local hospitals, be on your toes.
Help! My finger was here a minute ago!
