New Years Eve in Boquerón

In answer to my cyber friend, Linda, who commented on my Christmas Eve fireworks here in Boquerón, yes, they DO shoot off fireworks on New Years Eve. About a quarter to midnight you could hear explosions all over the area. Up and down the hill. One neighbor down the street has some high-powered bottle rockets and then at the stroke of midnight the real show began. The people who shot off the display I recorded Christmas went all out for New Years Eve. Some of them were as good as anything you’d see at a municipal fireworks display in a modest city in the States. Some of them actually had me applauding they were so good and at the end I had to yell, “Bravo” at the top of my lungs. What those people shot off would probably have bought me a fairly decent car. Sitting on my porch I could see big displays being fired off up near the town center, right in front of my house and down by El Cruce (where the Boquerón road and the Interamerican Hwy. meet). To say I was impressed would be an understatement.

  1. There were a lot of big beautiful fireworks here too. I don’t think they even sold those to the public back in the US. What fun!

    The ones here were definitely nothing you could buy in the States, that’s for sure. And I’m not sure that the one’s Carlos was shooting off were off the shelf stuff here, either. But for a guy making a couple of million bucks a year with the Phillies I’m sure he has his outlets.
