Fireworks bus service was complicated

This years OpSail fireworks were absolutely magical.

My three children, husband and I braved the crowds and took bus after bus to get to the "perfect" location to try to find an open spot to enjoy the night together.

Unfortunately, our night was almost ruined based on the total lack of organization by whomever was in charge of shuttling visitors to and from their respective parking spots. At 11:30 at night, my family and I still stood outside the gates of Fort Trumbull wondering how we were going to get back to Crystal Mall when no buses could be found.

After asking multiple police officers where the buses were to transport us, we were told that there were supposed to be volunteers ready and waiting to assist people onto the correct buses when they came, but they had all gotten on the first bus and left shortly after the fireworks ended.

When we finally were able to get on a bus, I couldn't help but wonder if it was all worth it.
