Fireworks in Mount Vernon Ohio

by Sam Miller

The Mount Vernon, Ohio community celebrated Independence Day with a spectacular fireworks display last night.  The sky was a perfect black backdrop which created an amazing contrast for the fireworks to come alive in the sky.  This length and intensity of fireworks being launched must have been in excess of years past because I shot over 300 photos and am sure I didn't capture half of the celebration with my camera.  Last night was a "WOW" experience in Mount Vernon, Ohio.

2011 Mount Vernon Ohio Fireworks Video

by Sam Miller


  
The Mount Vernon Ohio 4th of July Fireworks Celebration tonight was a seriously impressive event.  The fireworks display featured more than 20 minutes of non stop explosions with colorful light up the sky style excitement.  In my opinion the fireworks this year actually exceeded last years event and last year was pretty awesome especially for a small community.  I created a 10 minute video highlight reel of tonights fireworks and I hope you enjoy watching it.
