Once again, the town of Moxee outdid itself with neighborhood fireworks shows dominating Independence Day festivities.

It has become something of a competition over the years with individual households trying to out do one another. Even I got into the act by going down to the Yakama Nation Reservation to buy some of the "good" stuff!

No charcoal snakes or sparklers to be found there - just the big stuff as evidence by the $500 "Big Chief" set of artillery shells that dwarfed my son Drew!
