July 4, 2011. Peter Schjeldahl is not only a published poet and art critic for the New Yorker, he is also an avowed pyrotechnician, and hosts a yearly July 4 party on his country property in the Catskills which culminates in a fireworks display and bonfire.
A short video of the 2009 fireworks display is at top. Here are photos of the event and some footage from the party:
Happy Fourth of July.
