Longwood Gardens celebrated its newly reopened fountains display with a spectacular, sold-out fireworks and fountains show on Saturday night.
We had a great time watching the fireworks from our usual "cheap seats" (our car in the parking lot of the former Superfresh shopping center), and we especially liked the ultra-loud, ultra-bright ones, the squiggly, fizzy ones, and the multi-colored ones.
But our friends who managed to buy tickets and experienced the full show from inside the Gardens could not come up with enough superlatives to describe the vastly upgraded, amazingly creative fountains and sound system. "Best in the world" was one of the more restrained phrases they used. They didn't even mind the fact that they got soaking wet.
