Independce Day, on the 4th of July, is a big deal in the United States, it's where they all gather and drink plenty of Budweiser, roast whole pigs on an oversized barbeque, and celebrate their enormous amounts of freedom by shooting their automatic rifles in to the air.
They also have fireworks displays. In typically American style, they tend to last about 20 minutes at a time. That's aside from the Big Bay Boom in San Diego, where an eighteen-minute fireworks display was reduced down to fifteen seconds due to a technical glitch.
One of the largest 4th of July displays in the country was lit up by a violent display of light and colour that left many revelers wondering if something serious had happened.
It's still unclear why all of the fireworks went up simultaneously,but it still looked pretty awesome either way.
