First Night brings flames, fireworks


“We really love coming to play here in Oneonta,’’ John Dady said.

Margaret and Larry Miller of Oneonta took their grandsons, Colby Miller, 10 and his brother, Cody Wormuth, 7, out for dinner and to see some of the Main Street performers, including Cosmic Karma Fire, a troupe that entertains with flames.

“They put fire into their mouths,’’ Cody said.

“We liked them,’’ his brother said.

The boys, who live in Whitney Point, said they were eager to see the fireworks display, and Larry Miller re-parked his car on top of the parking garage so that the family could watch from a heated vehicle.

Meanwhile, a group of sky gazers gathered on the back deck of the Autumn Café on Main Street to see the 10:15 p.m. show.

Rat-a-tat sounds in the darkness turned into light bursts of red, yellow, green, white and blue fireworks, which prompted pleasant exclamations.

“Very cool,’’ said one voice in the crowd.

“Oh, that was nice,’’ said another. “I like that.’’
