FinnFest USA

As you know, FinnFest just ended with a spectacular parade and dazzling fireworks! The parade contained many peoples of Finland and mostly advertisements. This year, they had the old fireworks, and also some new ones, such as the "bombs". When they go off, they make a very loud BANG!!! and flash. They save them for the end and put them all together, so it felt like the earth was going to end! Tip: If you come, park your car on the downtown and slowly walk along the lakeshore until you enter Waterfront Park. Then, climb up the "chutes and ladders" playground area until you get to the deck. If you can't cross the wiggly-little bridges, just take the stairs to deck 1. Helicopter rides were available at $45 per person.
