Default Pensacola Fireworks

Was very disappointed. We sat on the beach at PYC and watched the fireworks at Portifino which lasted almost an hour much higher and more variety, Pensacola bay barely got of the trees and ended quick. Guess I need to stay at the beach next year.

boated out and parked near muscov/ 3 mile- and the show was absolutely wonderful. Saw PBeach fireworks from the south (and they did start on time at 9:00) and P'cola started later. I could hear the national anthem at 9ish. the show was terrific from my vantage point.

I sat in the bay with the other 500 or so boats you could see both the beach and in town from our vantage point it was great

On a different note, Milton's was short and badass as usual.

Greatest show I've ever seen was off Quietwater Beach last night. Not that the show was particularly amazing, but the view was awesome! I anchored about 100 yards off the launch barge and they exploded right over our boat. STINKING AMAZING.

Milton's show absolutely sucked this year.

It started off great with a good opening. Then a few minutes of the normal fireworks, and a grand finale. Extremely quick... ten minutes tops. The show stopped after the finale and people started to leave. Oops, wait a minute we got a few more to shoot off so it started up again for a couple of minutes. Ok, now we're done I think. Oh wait here's a couple more to shoot.

It was like a child was in charge. No rhyme or reason to it what so ever.
