We won’t support LP fireworks
June 27, 2011
To the editor:
The Mirror Lake Inn was one of the first businesses in town to support fireworks in Lake Placid in the summertime. This is probably the last year we will do it because:
1. Over the years we have consistently lobbied for three smaller shows throughout the summer rather than one larger show for the 4th of July. This would give more bang for our buck by exposing more guests to the experience. Three 10-minute shows, spread out, would go a lot further than one 30-minute show.
2. We feel some of the money being used by the Convention and Visitors Bureau for fireworks should be redirected to bring more visitors into the community, and that amount of money should then be raised throughout the rest of the business community.
Because we’ve always been strong supporters of the community, we will support Lake Placid fireworks this year in a token way, but we will not participate in the future with the existing scenario.
Very truly yours,
