Get stuck at the office tidying up the PowerPoint decks and missed the fireworks last night?

Maybe you got drunk in the afternoon, took a little nap "just to rest the eyes" at 6p and didnt wake up till midnight.

Or perhaps you were snorting rails off the flawless bellies of two of the cutest little hollywood starlets you've met in a very very long time, and forgot to open up the drapes of the beachside hotel and couldnt hear the explosions thanks to the thundering tones of Wolfmother booming from the jambox.

Well, then, bub, El Monte is your new best friend. And you can thank these geniuses at the El Monte City Council.

Instead of competing with the Rose Bowl, the Coliseum, Hollywood Bowl, and dozens of smaller fireworks displays, El Monte decided to have their show tonight while enjoying zero competition. Brilliant!

Maybe this will help people rediscover their love of El Monte, Your El Buddy Just 10 Miles East of Downtown

Tonight's display will be held on the 300 block of North Tyler between Concert and Sally Tanner Dr/Bodger at 8:45 p.m.
