Now here’s a guy who really enjoys a fireworks show! Standing in ankle deep water watching the POC fireworks show, this guy shows his approval of the bright explosions near the end of the show. If it weren’t for the loud booms of the explosions, I bet you could hear him hollering, “Oh Yeah!” -Mike Hessong

This is what the fireworks look like before they are set off.
