This is a long shot, but here goes - I'm trying to come up with evening entertainment suitable for visiting children ages 5-10, here in Nashville (tonight and tomorrow), and I see that the Sounds are putting on a fireworks display (presumably at LP Field). Does anyone know of a good viewing spot that would be comfortable for children? The likeliest spots are downtown in the midst of all the adult honkytonk. Maybe Riverfront Park or the pedestrian bridge, but it would be nice to have a kid-friendly strategy, rather than experimenting with them in tow. Suggestions handy to the Art Crawl on 5th would be especially valuable, as would any other after-dinner ideas.

The Sounds' fireworks display is at Greer Stadium, where they play. Honestly, the best spot is inside the stadium. You may (if you're lucky) be able to find a spot outside the stadium along the street near Ft. Negly, but I wouldn't count on it.

Ha...yeah, that'd be very disappointing! You can buy general admission seats probably later in the ballgame for very cheap. Maybe $5 or less/person. They usually draw decent crowds on fireworks night though they won't be sold out.

I actually thought of a place you could go watch the fireworks, but I personally wouldn't due to possible safety concerns. Dudley Park between 3rd and 4th ave south off of Chestnut would give you great views of the fireworks. But that area is hit and miss safetywise. I'm sure you'd be fine, but I'm not sure I'd take my kids down there at 9-10:00 at night.

Here's the info on the Sounds. Lots of great junk food . . hot dogs, ice cream, etc. And they have a goofy mascot that runs around AND some kind of kids race, I think it's after the game? But if it's a nice night, it's a fun way to spend a couple hours . . . it's casual.

Also, the Science Museum is having a 'star party' tonight. It starts at 8:30 - is that too late???
