SomerBlast a success despite rain

Spectators treated to hour-long fireworks show


Somerset —

“Kings Island doesn’t just shut down (because of rain); Disney World doesn’t just shut down,” he continued. “(We’ve heard) nothing but praise for the city.”
Next year, however, if it’s all the same, the city is hoping for a distinctly brighter, sunnier, drier day. Even so, the conditions Saturday provided a neat moment where man-made marvels met nature to provide a truly ethereal atmosphere, recalled the mayor.
“We heat the water at the park,” he said. “At the end (of the show), around 10:30 p.m., we had fog or mist coming off the water park rides, and at the same time, the rain was pouring. It was one of the most beautiful sights you could ever see, one of those moments where even though it’s adverse weather, it made a beautiful setting.”
