“I’ve never seen a bigger crowd, never heard bigger oohs and ahhs than I heard last night. And the synchronization was just amazing. I certainly hope we can have the entire team back next year for what promises to be another ‘blast.’ Heartfelt congratulations and thanks for having us as part of the fun.”
Dave Mason, The Walrus FM, 105.7FM

”Sandy, the show was fantastic Imperial Beach would like to send a BIG thank you to everyone that helped to make this a truly great birthday celebration. We hope to be a partner again next year.”
Jim Janney, Mayor, Imperial Beach

“I don’t recall ever seeing so many people out for the 4th of July. It brought such tears of joy to me to see all the families enjoying themselves. I know the last two years have been tough to put this show together but maybe that is the reason more people were out… Many were worried the show wouldn’t take place and I think now people appreciate it even more…. Thank you, Sandy!!”
Sharon Cloward, President, San Diego Port Tenants Association

“I can’t think of another event, including the Super Bowl, which drew so many people to a single event. Hornblower has been on the water, every Fourth of July, since 1984. There has been nothing like last night’s show. You should take a bow for keeping the torch alive, through all the legal hassles and then working with the Port and the tenants for a great outcome.”
Jim Unger, VP/General Manager, Hornblower Cruises & Events

“We can’t thank you enough. Everyone in San Diego owes you a debt of gratitude for making this Fourth of July the best ever.”
George Palermo, President, San Diego Harbor Excursions

“Great work, Sandy! It wouldn’t happen without you.”
