To the editor of THE EAGLE:

The Fourth of July is a time for parades, picnics, and fireworks! While many also enjoy a Pittsfield Suns baseball game, scheduling a fireworks show at the end of the game excludes many young families who are not able to keep their kids up past 11 o’clock. I saw many people packing it up and going home Thursday night before the fireworks.

Maybe it’s time to consider another plan so that everyone can enjoy the festivities on the 4th.
