This is the first year I didn’t arrive early to picnic at Campbell Field next to the Princeton Stadium before the fireworks began. My husband and I arrived about 30 minutes before the display started and still got a decent place to sit. I had time to set up my tripod, change camera settings, and chit-chat before taking photos.
The fireworks started pretty much on time and lasted about 35 minutes. There wasn’t a large variety of bursts displayed, so it was a little monotonous, but there were still some oohs and aahs heard. The finale was small, but after many started walking away, another final burst was fired off giving us a second mini finale.
Overall, it was a nice event, but it was apparent the budget isn’t what it used to be. I’m just thankful we had fireworks in Princeton, especially since a number of towns have cut it completely out of their budgets.
I’m sharing some of my favorite photos that I captured just in case you missed the Princeton fireworks display, or just like looking at fireworks photos.
