|The Mayor's Parade|
|Got to get a selfie once in a while|
The good mayor did, however, walk in a parade with and armful of candles, which he gave to the cardinal of Florence has mayors have for generations June 24.
But the big party was that night. The city puts on a fireworks show to end all fireworks shows.

Then there is the quality of the fireworks. I've never seen so many colors, such unusual arrays nor the volume of fireworks blasting into the Florence air.
But the topper is the length of the show. It went on for a good hour, during which perhaps a thousand or more rockets burst their red, green, gold, blue and even orange glare.
Taking photos of fireworks usually stumps me. I got at least one passable shot with the camera. But I have a lot more "mind photos" stored away in my organic hard drive.
