Sounds like a WWII reenactment outside. Both in the near hood and the far hood in Mpls. I've got no fireworks. Could shoot a shotgun in the air i guess. 50 year old shells should be noisy. Would take the shot out first. Or is that a New Years Eve thing? I'd swear one the bangbangbangbangs close by sounded more like 9mm than firecrackers.
