We pulled our boat out of its slip and made our way 500 yards down river to the Madisonville riverfront. We wanted front row seats to the fireworks show and we ended up being waaaayyyyy closer to the action than we ever anticipated.
The city moved the location of the pyrotechnic launching area to a mere 20 yards off of our bow.
There were a few moments when we thought the boat might catch on fire but fortunately it worked out and no damage was done.
Next year we’ll find a spot a little further away from the action.
