Letter: Fantastic fireworks at Lake Tahoe (opinion)

The July Fourth fireworks were the best. I especially appreciated the many patriotic songs and music. The crowd always applauded when a patriotic piece was played. It would be great if all the songs were patriotic as that is what July Fourth is all about.

The finale was fantastic lasting about a minute and half. According to Carol Chaplin, the Tahoe fireworks are always rated in the top 10 of the country and this year was rated one of the best in the country by Conde Naste Traveler.

A huge thank you to Tahoe Douglas Visitors Authority which sponsors and pays for the fireworks and Tahoe Douglas Fire District which assists in the permits, safety and clean up. Thank you also to Zambelli Fireworks, one of the top fireworks companies, for this year’s super display.

A special thank you to Carol Chaplin, executive director of the Tahoe Douglas Visitors Authority, and Mike Frye, events manager, for all they do for this area.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s fireworks amazing. I am looking forward to next year’s Fourth of July fireworks.
