huge crowd pleaser

Boomsday, a huge fireworks display, lit up Knoxville on Sunday night.

The weather was absolutely perfect as people arrived starting at 3pm.

Kent Blackwelder of "Big Brother 2" was helping a friend of his sell BBQ. Kim Hansard and Justin Buznedo gave me a ride up to the Henley Street bridge where the Pyro Shows command post was located.

I was able to get up close and personal with the shells before they blew up.

I decided to take some pictures even though most of them resemble what you see on the first night after Lasik surgery. In addition to the usual bursts, some fireworks looked like smiley faces, stars and other shapes.

The crowd especially loved the orange fireworks set off to the tune of "Rocky Top" and the waterfall effect to the tune of "Rhapsody In Blue." This last shot is of the finale.
