4th of July

I am so disappointed in what should have been a really great Fourth of July for us locals here. For the most part free from tourist over crowding the streets making it tough for the locals to enjoy any part of the Fourth's downtown celebration. So why does it seem like this year must have been one of the most lamest Fourth of Julys in Ketchikan?

I am now starting to understand why some people leave and go elsewhere to celebrate. Was it because there was no tourist in to help up the profit for the city? I am sorry to seem so harsh but it's so hard to see what the Fourth has become here as to what it used to be. Am I the only one who was disappointed in the Fourth of July here?
