It's great for people watching and possibly catching rabies.
Mindy and I have gone every year we have been together, mainly to judge these people. (Oh and to eat the delicious fried desserts like Twinkies, Oreos, Snickers, and Moonpies.
The local hillbillies wait for this shit to happen all year long. The Knoxville News Sentinel, interviewed a woman who had come down from the mountains with her whole family and this is what she had to say.
"I've been to Disney World, and I think this is even better"
30 minutes of fireworks is better than Disney World? This woman's priorities are seriously fucked up.
Last year, they managed to catch the bridge (where they shoot off all of the fireworks) on fire. We were hoping for something equally as awesome to happen this year. Maybe 15 minutes into the show, the sky opened up and God washed all the heathens (or it just rained hard, whatever). Seriously, there were 400,000 people at this event. And they all started running like it was acid rain. And the fireworks were still booming away. It was the most chaotic thing I have ever witnessed.
