4th of July noise

Well folks, it's that time again. I've lived near River park for almost 10 years now, and I realize that on the 4th of July everybody has to break out those illegal firecrackers and start shooting them off. What I really really really hate, is the sleep deprivation torture that ensues once you hit say 12, 12:30 and you really need to get to sleep.

Well folks, it's that time again. I've lived near River park for almost 10 years now, and I realize that on the 4th of July everybody has to break out those illegal firecrackers and start shooting them off. What I really really really hate, is the sleep deprivation torture that ensues once you hit say 12, 12:30 and you really need to get to sleep. That's when they seem to start shooting off the quarter sticks of dynamite. You can call the police all you want. It seems like it's a canyon in this neighborhood and I don't know if these folks can even be found. Has anybody had any kind of luck dealing with this sort of thing? I've got little kids in the house and a disabled daughter. I would just like to get to sleep by you know , midnight Maybe? Thank you.

    here is a good song, move with the beat and look into each others eyes and just start lip syncing or singing it to each other.... magic.

  • Not only we had someone start their fireworks at 10:40 PM we have a guy who installed 4 speakers on his house and he blasted music. Why do some people don't want to be good neighbors??? They have a little baby.

noise at night at River Park

I knew they were going to be digging/blasting during the day, but there is some kind of machine or generator running into the late hours (midnight) that is unbelievably loud. Last night I started to appreciate the airplane noise over this. I'm actually having a hard time going to sleep. And I don't even live right by there, just a few blocks away.

Is there anything that can be done? There must be some kind of ordinance about late-night construction noise, no?
