Jake, thanks for the giggle :-) Tradition means a great deal to me. America sort of made fireworks part of a tradition, it's not really ours to claim. If it's part of YOUR tradition, fantastic, glad you enjoy the show. It's not part of mine and I don't enjoy it. We like different things and I appreciate that freedom :-) I want to feel confident that this show does in fact curb the use of illegal fireworks. The City isn't putting this show on. What efforts is the City making? Where I live, I hear the same amount of fireworks I have for years, What neighborhoods are hearing less? I haven't called MPD in the past three years because four years ago, my calls were ignored. I can't be the only one that's not calling for this reason. Are MPD/MFD not receiving as many calls because of the fireworks show? Are there fewer injuries and fires? I hope so, but I would need to see the numbers. Again, I am not suggesting the show or fireworks are banned altogether...just want to know "why" have a show when fireworks are illegal in Monrovia? Provide me with the numbers that have decreased because of this show to answer the "why" and give the show purpose. Pretty is not purpose.

Nic, thank you for writing such nice things about me :-) I too, had a Shepherd who freaked out while in the backyard for a potty break. She attempted to jump a four foot chain link fence and ended up hanging off of it by her belly skin. It was awful! Fireworks were illegal in Monrovia and this was in Monrovia. I think, having worked in the professional pet care industry for 20 years, some dog owners still don't get the dangers. It's those dog owners that will lose their dogs this weekend. I strongly urge all pet owners to take extra precautions to keep their pets inside and feeling safe. I have to give my dogs sedatives for three nights because of the illegal use of fireworks. During the show I have to double up, poor dogs are drooling by the time it's over.
