Independence Day Fireworks Finale

Ala Moana Center 4th of July Fireworks Finale

It was the mother of all fireworks shows for this holiday season. Once again the good folks at Ala Moana Shopping Center came through with another spectacular 4th of July fireworks show. An estimated 50,000 people came to the center and nearby Ala Moana Beach Park to watch the 20+ minute fireworks finale that capped off another successful 4th of July weekend.

While North Korea allegedly pointed some missiles at us this weekend and actually fired a few of them off, none reach the Hawaiian Islands. In fact they all fell way short in the Pacific as they were only short range rockets. No thread to Hawaii thank goodness!

So here we all were enjoying tonights fireworks at Ala Moana and elsewhere on the island and throughout the state. It is great knowing that we belong to the greatest nation on earth, the United States of America. It was a great time to enjoy our nation’s birthday.


Top photo is a capture from the fireworks show. Both it and the above video shot with my hand held Flip Video camera. Enjoy!
