hi tom & edwin,
thanks for the responses and info.

Yes, I'm going to have this processed at Dwayne's as this is the only option
and they offer a 3 stop max push, which sounds extreme, but I'd like to know
if anyone has tried it. The only reason I'm shooting kodachrome is b/c of
the 12/30 deadline. The festival is not going to be so much fireworks as
colored lights on buildings, which I think I can capture since it should be
quite bright. What I anticipate will be dimly lit is the candles that
everyone in the city puts in their windows, and that is what I'm hoping to
capture with a little push.

edwin, thanks for the latitude comment, I did not think about this, and now
am weary of going anywhere past 2 stops. I'll try some test rolls to see
how much I can get away with. I'm also a little curious to see what a 3
stop push will look like...

thanks for the help,
