    Did you got out to see fireworks this weekend? It was a huge pain in the ass this year with the crowds, parking, etc. We felt obligated to to take the kids and they were not that into it.

    The folks in the story below are a little over the top with their reactions.

    Wave washes out Seaside Heights fireworks display
    SEASIDE HEIGHTS – A wave swamped Seaside Heights' July Fourth fireworks display and dampened the spirits of thousands of visitors that came to the borough hoping to see the spectacle.

    Many took to social media to vent their disappointment.

    "Seaside blew it. No excuse. A town trying to rebound completely dropped the ball," wrote one Facebook commenter. "Myself and 20+ friends and family gathered. All born and bred locals. Won't happen again."

    Township Administrator Christopher J. Vaz posted the details of the wave that ruined the display to Facebook.
    "The fireworks were set up closer to the surf than usual in an effort to satisfy state regs (regulations) which require that spectators be maintained a specific distance, 120 feet, from the fireworks," Vaz wrote Saturday night. "Unfortunately, the tide was higher and rougher than usual (Saturday) and the fireworks were swamped by a wave that made it up to the 110-foot mark. Wet fireworks = no fireworks."

    Spectators were furious by the sudden cancellation.

    "Poor planning for sure," one Facebook commenter replied to Vaz. "This isn't just a Wednesday Night Fireworks show that was canceled because of the wind. It is July 4th!!! Unacceptable!!!"

    Others defended Seaside Heights officials.
    "The 4th isn't about fireworks," a commenter wrote on the post. "We didn't get to see the fireworks display we expected either because of unpredictable events. We still shook it off and said there's always tomorrow."

    Beach erosion since superstorm Sandy has made each fireworks display "a challenge," Vaz wrote.

    "Seaside Heights deeply regrets the inconvenience and disappointment," he wrote.

    I don't have to go anywhere, everyone's got them stock-piled here so you literally could look out my basement window and see multiple shows taking place next door for hours.

    Howie jokes aside, I genuinely don't like them. I don't like bright lights. I don't like loud noises. The dogs barking neighborhood-wide is absolutely insane. God, it sucked, thank christ I don't have kids.

    Fireworks are fun for about 30 seconds. Then it gets repetitive and boring.
