Original Post: A number of people wrote this morning to ask about a fireworks display late Saturday night on the city's north side. The display occurred around 11 p.m. and woke a number of people up.
We put the question out to our Twitter followers, and here's what we found:
The fireworks were set off from the end of Michigan Boulevard to celebrate a wedding. The celebrants apparently had a permit from the city for the display.
"Whoever it was spent a lot of money," one reader writes. "They were launching 4 to 6 inch shells every few seconds for 12 minutes. I guess each shell is $50-$100. It was quite a show and the bums woke me up!"
Here's another reader:
"It seemed to be near the north side of Racine and a professional display versus some backyard hooligans. It woke up most of us in the area but nobody seems to know who was responsible for it. That hour of the night was unreasonable and someone should be taken to task for it."
We'll have to wait until tomorrow (offices are closed today) to find out how someone acquires a permit to launch fireworks. More as we know it ...
