NDP Rehearsals

Post by nakatago » Fri, 22 Jul 2011 2:26 pm

So, ok, they're rehearsing for the big day every Saturday. Marching practice? Check. Aircraft fly-bys? Check. Performance rehearsals? Check.

But what I don't get is why do you need to rehearse fireworks? Isn't that like spoiling the big show for everyone? If it's about safety, couldn't they just use some sort of simulacrum?

Not that I'm complaining because I get to see a free show every week but rehearsing fireworks just puzzles me.

You have to test the programme that they use to coordinate the fireworks, it's all computerised now.

Yeah I know, but every week? Anyway, it's ok; I won't lose sleep over it. Like I said, free show. :lol:
