    Brought the kids to the fire show Saturday night, from Cornwall. Got there and it was impossible to see anything. People were standing on tables . Left disappointed. Long drive for nothing.
    I was at this event a few years ago and it was set up better. People were sitting on the sidewalks so everyone could see the show.
