Ok everyone – the details are:
The cremains will be going up in the very first two shells starting the fireworks show at this week’s Festival finale (usually somewhere in the 10 to 10:30 p.m. window). Those first two shells will be what are called Gold Glitter Crossettes (plenty of YouTube video available upon Googling that phrase to review exactly what that variety looks like). Attached is a photo of the actual shells I received today, nicely labeled In Memory Of.
I don’t know who all will actually be attending the concert, but Michelle and I will be at a table, should be fairly easily found as we’re in the very last row of tables (row K), on the side nearest the main entrance, table number 21. If anyone else knows exactly – or has at least some sense of – where they’ll be onsite, let us all know so we can greet each other as best we can at some point during the evening, in what I hope will be a good sized crowd.
I hope we can all get some good photos of the Hale fireworks to share.

The newspaper story is great.
Watching fireworks was a big part of growing up…every holiday that had fireworks our family was there. The tradition was get ice cream cones at Deeds Dairy store and then go watch the fireworks show. Mom and Dad continued to spend their summer evenings at the Lancaster Festival enjoying the music and fireworks show with their numerous friends and family.
This idea was so appropriate and the display was awesome as the photos show. I’m sure both of them were smiling to go out with such a beautiful BANG!!
