Here is a summary of my camera operations plan for tonight's fireworks:

Visible Fireworks:
You should be able to view the fireworks from the Bridgecam, Harborcam, and Bayfront Cams

Audio: Hearing the ooos and aahs of the crowds at Canal Park is always fun. The Bridgecam, and Canal Cam will be the best cameras for sound.  I will also turn on sound for the Harborcam and Bayfront Cams to hear the fireworks and Bayfront Music.

Harborscan Cam Operation: I will have the Harborscan Cam zoomed into Bayfront Park for the evening and tun it for the fireworks display.

Enjoy the show either by attending live or through the cameras.

Happy Birthday America!

  6. Looking forward to the fireworks. I'd rather watch these on-line over the beautiful Duluth harbor than to go downtown for the local ones where it's hot and crowded...Texas, ya know! :)
    Happy Independence Day and thanks for all you do!
