Sharon e-mails Mr. Answer Person: "Why are there no fireworks in Decorah on Independence Day?"

Mr. Answer Person says: "You can disagree with the logic, but there ARE two reasons Decorah doesn't have a fireworks display on July 4th:

1) Decorah's fireworks come at the end of July--during the annual Nordic Fest celebration.

2) Other nearby communities DO have fireworks, including Spillville, Monona and Eitzen, so it's not like you have to do without fireworks on the 4th.
