The weather was perfect!…

Sitting along the Ohio River wherever there was a spot…

Vendors with food/drinks/souvenirs… etc. … and people crowded together for the best seats to see the “Fireworks” that begin at 9:30 pm …

We used to do this too… but, with it being so crowded… and walking a MUST!… we have opted out this year… and watched on TV…

but, I will say… there is nothing like being there… in person…

The name…”Thunder Over Louisville” is very appropriate!… so loud it makes your heart pound…

AWESOME is all I can say!…
