    Ames fireworks

    Are they any good? Thinking about heading over and watching from Jack Trice.

    This man speaks the truth.

    They're fireworks, I wouldn't say they're spectacular, but what have you got to lose?




    Eyes closed, head first, can't lose.

    They're not bad. Not spectacular or anything, but they're free and easy to see from quite a bit of town.

    I still can't believe someone would procreate with you. Mrs. Cycrazy did procreate with you, didn't she?

    Carlisle, a smaller town I grew up in has one hell of a display every year. They launch a **** load of 6 inch artillery shells and have some great cakes they shoot off. The display lasts almost an hour.

    Have you seen them from West Lake Okoboji on a boat? It's pretty sweet with all the other boats around you. It's like an outdoor surround sound and all the lights around the lake from the boats is pretty amazing.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd
