Provided that it's legally allowed, I'll be shooting off likely from the Wil tower about 10:00pm.
Feel free to come and join in the fun.
I'm picking up about 700 chf worth of stuff.
Hoping there's a grill up there too for food :-)

They have stopped selling them in Zurich because of the prolonged dry period. Some Cantons make the decision tomorrow to continue to sell or not, i.e the likes of Migros, Coop etc.

For anyone who is thinking about dropping some dough on fireworks, do check to make sure your canton hasn't banned them:

Re: Swiss National Day Aug 1, 2010 - St.Gallen

are there any fireworks or events (wrestling) going on in or around Zurich?

I am aware of fireworks on the Uetliberg via a hotel, Friday fireworks at Rhine Falls which sound epic, Saturday fireworks at a nearby town on a lake, but NO fireworks on Lake Zurich, is that right?
