I thought it was just me but then I heard several women in my step class at the YMCA talking about the "Party Of The Century," for the Burbank centennial celebration and expressing their disappointment. One woman said it was boring, and that there were 25,000 people just walking back and forth looking at the Lockheed booth. That's how I felt too because I live downtown, so I'm familiar with the restaurants and businesses down there already. For me the only difference from any other Friday night was 22,000 extra people, road closures and the fireworks.
