I'm not sure why, but Gainesville always has 4th of July fireworks on July 3rd. This year, the fireworks were scheduled to begin at 9:40 last night, but around 9:20 it started to rain really hard. By 9:40 the local radio station made the announcement that the rain was moving out of our area and the fireworks would be delayed until 10:00, but would still happen.
It drizzled throughout the fireworks display, but it was fun walking to the show with our umbrellas and it wasn't at all crowded.
After the fireworks show ended last night, Blaze asked me how they get the different colors in the fireworks, but I didn't know the answer until I found this video this morning.
