A Very Bright Fourth of July!

If you caught the San Diego Fourth of July celebrations yesterday, you were in for a unique and unexpected sight. The city's planned 20-minute firework extravaganza malfunctioned, causing the whole show to erupt in just fifteen seconds! Talk about blowing the lid off a party.

Boasting some of the nation's largest Independence Day festivities, close to half a million spectators gather from around the world to join in. We hope next year they get to enjoy the city's incredible fireworks display as it was intended to be! Either way, we think this makes for one heck of a story to tell the kids.
