Back in the millennium, 1999-2000 New Years Eve I owned the Pier Lounge and we split the cost of the fireworks with the Town Board. They dug them into the beach beach back then. I asked everyone to please move their boats but a few crotchety old farts San Pedranos refused to move their vessels and I had to buy 2 new Bimini tops by daybreak. I think is was a set up=-).
The tab was $10,000bz for my part of the show.
A different time and place I guess.
