Free Fireworks!

I was also told that, before the city manager evaluation, the council voted to end the $3 entrance fee to Rosemead Park on the Fourth of July.  Yay!

Yes, I know that three dollars is not a lot of money.  But it's more than zero.  So a lot of people the past few years have contented themselves with watching the fireworks from the sidewalks, lawns, parking lots, or what ever, just outside the fence.

What the means is that the various non-profit and community entities that set up booths to sell food and stuff to raise money for their organization lose out.  Removing the fee will increase foot traffic to the booths, and that means more money for our community groups.
