The Secret of the Jumpin' Star

Posted October 16, 2007 7:18 p.m. EDT

There's a ride at the kiddie midway, near the Education Building, called the Jumpin' Star. Across from it is an information booth.

If you stand facing the information booth, go to the left corner, and turn around, you'll find yourself in a perfect place to watch the fireworks at night. And it's not nearly as noisy or crowded as going down closer to the lake.

So is that why the Jumpin' Star has been put there... or is it just a coincidence.... ?
