July 4th 2009 fireworks Evansville, IN

Posted on July 6, 2009


I went down to Evansville, IN on July 4th to watch the fireworks from the Casino Aztar roof. Before the fireworks they had a great picnic with plenty of food and I pigged out and had a full stomach.



After eating, we made it up to the top of the boat and found our spots to watch the fireworks. As soon as the fireworks started, the casino started playing some very bad music very loudly. You could not hear yourself talking and could just hear the fireworks themselves. Several people left and I would have done so as well had I been alone. This pretty much ruined the evening and made it the worst fireworks event I have ever been to.

Finally, at the end of the show the Casino turned off their crappy music and we actually got to hear some patriotic music that actually kinda went along with the display.

Here are some pictures from the show.

Here is some video I shot with my phone:

Unless Casino Aztar decides not to play that bad music next year, I can not recomend watching the fireworks from the boat. It would have been much better with no music than what we had to sit though.
