In Seattle it doesn't get dark until 10 PM. That means the fireworks don't go off until very late. So of course, I didn't see the fireworks displays. I did however hang out where they sell the stuff. The staff who work at the TNT fireworks pop up shop, happen to be school teachers making some extra bucks over the summer holiday. I thought it would be hooligans stopping by to purchase bombs and rockets but it was mostly families. Mom and dads with little kids in tow, asking what they wanted. A very wholesome atmosphere indeed. Everyone said hello to their favorite teachers. The only Hooligan happened to be me, the clown with the sketchbook and the sunburned nose.
