Too bright for fireworks on July 4th
Take a look at the differences in fireworks display between Independence Day and New Year’s Eve in Alaska. Now, you might be wondering what led to the demise of Alaskan’s patriotism, but this isn’t the case. In fact, the nights in July are far too bright to see anything except for the wisps of smoke after the firework’s explosion.
In December, things are flipped on their head. The days are short (between three and four hours), so you can send fireworks in the sky at 3 PM without concern. With a backdrop of Alaska’s natural mountain beauty, do you even need fireworks in the first place?
