My husband and I have been attending the Fourth of July Fireworks at Bear Mountain for close to 7 or 8 years now. It has become a family tradition which includes my sister-in-law, her husband and their 2 children as well as my sister, my bother and his wife, a friend, her 3 children, her boyfriend and her father. For years I would call to make sure when the fireworks would be and every year I was told that it was always on the Friday before the Fourth of July. So, I remembered this and did not call as this meant the fireworks would be on Friday July 2. When I sat down to read today's paper I was shocked when I saw in the Times Herald-Record's "What's Happening" column that the fireworks were tonight. I am disappointed to the point of tears.
