Night was transformed to day when the Powell Volunteer Fire Department fired-up their annual Fourth of July fireworks.
The boys let it rip — BOOM, BOOM, BOOM! Like lightning erupting, the sky was torn apart in radiant colors.
In the pit where the firefighters sparked their ordnance, the earth shook from explosive concussions and spent gunpowder hung in the air like dust from passing cars.
Between deafening blasts, the crowd cheered. Within the pit, exuberant firefighters whooped. It was a night of explosive pageantry befitting any Independence Day celebration.
Nice job, guys.
