Dunkirk’s July 4 one of the best


Since I haven’t lived in the area for several years, July Fourth was the first time I’ve seen the fireworks at the Dunkirk City Pier since the mid-’80s. I have only one word to describe it: incredible!

I’ve been fortunate to see Independence Day fireworks in many different cities across this nation, including those in Washington, D.C., the past 15 years, but I can state unequivocally that none of them tops the display I witnessed that July 4 night! Everything about the event: the spectacular fireworks, bands playing, crowds gathering, waffles selling, shops on the pier. It was just perfect!

The city of Dunkirk and all of its inhabitants should be justifiably proud. You sponsor one of the greatest Fourth of July celebrations anywhere in this country. Thank you!
