Calling all Springfieldians ... I need some info ... and unfortunately, I'm going to need it in the next six to eight hours. I'm only hoping someone is out there (on the 4th of July???) reading the Springfield bloglist ...
We're wanting to see "Rock the Dock" this year ... but we've got no interest in going to the Marina to party. Now, I haven't been out on the Lake in years ... but when I was growing up, my Dad would take me out on our boat and he'd usually launch at the docks off of 6th Street. There used to be picnic tables and such further down the launch area ... and I'm pretty sure that launch is across from the Marina.
So, my question ... can you see the fireworks anywhere else off the Lake? Or do you have to go to the Marina itself? Anyone got any suggestions or ideas? We want to try something new besides the usual downtown fare. If we went to the 6th Street launch (have no idea what exit that is ... but it's before Chatham) ... could we park somewhere down there and see the fireworks?
