Last year threats of violence had caused the event to be cancelled after weeks of preparation. It's a sad commentary that an individual (or individuals) could ruin such a wonderful event.
Today's photo theme is Firework Friday (hashtag #FireworkFriday), but I'm not using a photo from previous Atlas shows. I've picked one from a show that Mike Deblasio, a specialty masonry contractor hosts right in my hometown. This display was held at the ball field at New Ipswich Athletic Association in July of 2012.
