A bang-up job

O.B. fireworks dazzle crowd once again.


The annual summer Oak Bluffs fireworks, sponsored by the Oak Bluffs Firemen’s Civic Association, were on full dazzling display Friday night.

The display drew a crowd of over 5,000 adults and children in and around Ocean Park, the Oak Bluffs Fire Department told The Times Saturday morning. Despite a large portion of the park being gated off, the public crowded along the gingerbread houses to catch a glimpse of the colorful pyrotechnics. 

Unfavorable winds carried smoke and debris across Ocean Park and as far as Giordano’s Restaurant. Despite a smoky show, the public broke out into applause and shouts of joy as the show ended.
