Big four minutes, if you want to know

The Dodgers have informed the community of a four-minute fireworks show in the stadium parking lot tonight.

Dear Neighbor, As part of our commitment to inform the community of events taking place at Dodger Stadium, please be aware that a brief four minute firework show will take place in the outfield parking lot tomorrow, Friday, November 21, at approximately 9:00 p.m. As always, the safety of those attending the event, our neighbors, the surrounding community and the firefighters themselves is of paramount concern to us. Should the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) request that we cancel the fireworks on Friday due to weather concerns, or any other concern for that matter, we will happily comply. Decisions on this will be made right up until the time of the show. Finally, LAFD personnel (including a water truck) and Stadium management will be on site to manage the event.
Should you have any concerns relative to these events, please call our Neighborhood Focus Line at (323) 224-2636.

Chicken Corner appreciates the heads up but wonders what's the celebration, and are we invited? And what happened to a good old brass band parade?

Just for the record, a few clucks about how dry it is out there and we just had big fires last week -- there's still ash all over the leaves of my avocado tree. In fact, everything looks a tiny bit dull outdoors around here because of the thin layer of ash dust. Cluck cluck cluck. And a moment to wonder if the Dodgers have participated recently in any kind of underbrush clearing in Elysian Park beyond the confines of its own stadium property.
