The fireworks started at 9:15 p.m. We were seated on the terrace by the Main Conservatory, a few rows back, so we couldn't see too much of the fountains except the tops of the ones in back when they were at peak heights. We had a very good view of the fireworks, though.
It didn't take as long to get out of the parking lot as I thought it would. There were a lot of people directing traffic.
The fireworks were a pretty spectacular show. S.M. and I kept up conversation for several hours, some of which was talking about flowers. It was a good time.
