After eating dinner out, our group bought glow sticks and then drove to the Redding Civic Center to see the fireworks. I have watched the fireworks almost every year, from various locations in Redding. However, it was my first time to view them from the Redding Civic Center. Many people had already congregated by the time we arrived, but we still found a place to sit. Everyone cheered when the first firework shot into the sky. It was a late night for everyone, but we had a ton of fun. Next year, I hope to return to the Civic Center to watch the fireworks.
