Springfield Illinois Fourth of July 2013 Fireworks Show. The video was recorded from inside the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel . Unfortunately the camera went out of focus a few times. Not the best quality. This year it seemed like surrounding communities spent more money on fireworks productions. Might be a sign the economy is slightly better. Explosions could be heard until around 1AM. Although the video quality wasn’t great – I was able to record much of the activity from our vantage point.
