I have a new favourite vantage. The new 12th Street SE bridge gives a pretty impaccable view of the East side of downtown. Sorry my cell phone couldn't do it proper justice at this time of night.
I was at my cousin's wedding at the zoo and we took a break to watch the fireworks it was really well done. I'd love to see some video from closer in if it's out there. The reflections off the buildings were nearly as good as the show itself. They were better than the Canada 150 fireworks in Ottawa.
