Mayor's Cup fireworks win high marks

PLATTSBURGH — Looks like the City of Plattsburgh’s fireworks got rave reviews this year.

We asked Press-Republican Facebook readers what they liked about this year’s Plattsburgh Mayor’s Cup Regatta and Festival and whether they had any advice on future city celebrations.

Here are some of the responses:

Tammy Whitty-Brown: “I helped out at the Kent-Delord House for the evening, where we provided games for the children before the fireworks. It was very successful and everyone had a blast. I loved seeing the smiles on the children’s faces as they played, and we served them popcorn and snowcones. Then we all watched the fireworks, which were the best I have ever seen in the North Country, and that is hard for me to admit as I was raised in Schroon Lake where they normally have some of the best fireworks on the 4th.”

Caity Saunders Worley: “I loved that there seemed to be a lot more things for kids of the younger age group to do. We had a fantastic time!”

Nikki Edwards: “Loved that there were several free activities for the kids! Also loved the Mayor’s Cup Idol! Such amazing talent in our area. The fireworks ... were amazing, and I think they were better than the 4th of July ones!”

Esteban Gotti: “Coordinate better the traffic disaster that occurred downtown on Friday for those of us who had to work because we don’t have enough money to either own a boat or take the day off...thanks!”

Anika Fullum: “I loved the kids activities, especially the ARC Family Fun Zone!”

Brittanie Elizabeth Bouvia: “Nothing like it used to be *___* !!”

Ricky Dykeman: “The fireworks this year, both both the 4th and Mayor’s Cup, were the best I’ve seen in quite a few years.”
