Decided to shoot this years Hoboken Italian Festival fireworks from a different perspective: Up at Stevens Institute.

Hoboken Fireworks September 7 2008 from Hoboken411 on Vimeo.

About 30-40 people gathered on the viewing platform.

While I love fireworks, I didn’t get the same enthusiasm this year. Perhaps it was because I was too far? Also, did anyone think they shortened the show compared to last year?

Anyway, I just whipped the grand finale together despite having all 20 or so minutes on film. If you didn’t catch the show, or you’re a re-located ex-Hobokenite that wants to remember what it’s like – this video is for you!

A bit boring, but may be cool to see from another angle.
