Last night, I attended the 2019 finale of the Fort Henry Sunset Ceremony. I was there for the first event of this year in early July... but as the sky was still relatively bright even at 9PM at that time of the year, I thought the muzzle flashes of the rifles and cannons, and the climatic fireworks, were not particularly visible. So, back then I had already decided to attend the final event, and it did not disappoint.

The evening started with the bagpipe:
