Every year, Harrisburg shoots fireworks off from City Island. If you are willing to do a bit of walking, it’s not hard to get close to the action because the there is a lot of space along the river to sit. These are photos taken along the riverfront just south of the Harvey Taylor Bridge from the July 3rd, 2011 firework show. I liked this location because it’s in plain view of the launch point, and the sound really echoes off the bridge — it’s a pretty neat effect.

The last photo is of the finale, and although you can’t really see the fireworks, the photo gave me an eerie feeling of what the explosions may have been like during the fight for independence.
