    Fireworks-Des Moines area

    So what are your favorite places to go and see the fireworks? I'll never go back to West Des Moines. The fireworks are good but it takes about 5 hours to get out of the parking lot. Also, any that are on the 3rd instead?

    Re: Fireworks-Des Moines area

    Creston has a pretty good fireworks display. that's where we will be.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Adventure Land and Parie Medows always have good fire works.

    Re: Fireworks-Des Moines area

    Urbandale is the best usually. I guess you can tell by the amount of people from outside Des Moines that come to see them. It is crazy trying to get anywhere in town about an hour before and after they are done. Totally worth it though.

    I agree with this....Im on the 16th floor of my building over looking Principal Park. Best view in town. Also, you can watch all the other shows around the area from up there so its about 2hours worth of fireworks.

    You just don't know where to park.
