Wedding Fireworks Safety Zone

My invitation must have been lost in the mail.

I’ve been to big weddings, but this one sounds like something in a whole new category. I wonder if Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn were there…. I don’t know if I’m more impressed by the size of the fireworks display, or the fact that they were able to get a rule out of the Coast Guard so expeditiously. If anyone went, please send pictures. From the Federal Register:

The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for the Lynch Wedding Fireworks display on August 5, 2006 in Marblehead, Massachusetts, temporarily closing all waters of the Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge within a four hundred (400) yard radius of the fireworks barges located at approximate positions 42°30.142′ N, 070°49.813′ W and 42°30.146′ N, 070°49.733′ W. This zone is necessary to protect the maritime public from the potential hazards posed by a fireworks display. The safety zone temporarily prohibits entry into or movement within this portion of the Atlantic Ocean during its closure period. Entry into this zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, Boston, Massachusetts or the COTP’s designated representative.

This rule is effective from 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on August 5, 2006.
