Canobie Lake Park might  go into a top five nostalgic places for me and my heart.

Many of us New Englanders, even more so for the 603 born and raised, practically grew up at Canobie Lake Park.

Ages 2-6: We went. Our parents brought us because it was cheap (free for kids under three), a fun date night for them, and we do not remember much it because we were three.

Ages 6-12: Summer camps. Day trips. Friends family has an extra ticket, "can I go mom, please?"

Ages 13-18: Old and tall enough to ride the rides. At the age where we want to go alone with our friends. We still remembered the past - the nostalgic trips with the family.

Through all of those trips one thing stuck out to me as a kid.

Well, one ride I should say...

This bad boy.

We used to call them "The Swing."

They are really known as Divinci's Dream.

The only thing that would make this ride better was to do it at night. The stars above you, the illuminating colored lights from the other rides and swings.

Nothing could beat it...well, one thing.

Watching fireworks from these swings could be the greatest way to watch fireworks in New Hampshire. A very Granite State way to spend an evening.

Fortunately, every Friday from now until August 26, you can enjoy free fireworks at Canobie Lake Park.

The fireworks will take place each Friday at 9:15 PM.

This is a sweet way to end a week, start a weekend, have a family evening trip, or a nostalgic date night.

For more information about the weekly fireworks, or other events, see the Canobie Lake Park website.
