Did anyone go to see the fireworks today? About 5 minutes in one of them misfired and blew up on the ground, losing about a truckload of fireworks.

It looked like someone got seriously injured as well, since there were firetrucks, ambulances, and police vehicles headed in that direction after I left.

I saw that. What a crappy show. Whoever was in charge should never do that show again!

I went to the show in Lyons and it was awsome. I have never seen a show like it! I think they should be the ones doing the show in North Riverside.

i was part of the crew on that fireworks display, and the problem was that a large caliber shell detonated in the gun ,causing a lot of damage to the equipment, as well as destroying some of the fireworks. it was amazing that no one got hurt- you should have felt the blast up close!! once we were given an all clear, we finished firing what we could, most of which looked good. sometimes , even the best quality shells misfire, and there is nothing that can be done once that happens.

Why are we still talking about firework works in Sept. Is your life that bad?

Lets talk about the good things in life like BEER, FOOTBALL, HOTDOGS, HOW YOUR NUTS STUCK TO YOUR LAZY BOY THAT ONE NIGHT WHEN THE A/C WENT OUT, about the time your heard the the people next door yelling at 2;30 in the morning at each other only to find out they were having sex. Or how your mom makes the best Jell-o. So I ask you who cares about fireworks in Sept?

North Riverside Day
I was working that night in Oak Park and I'll say that it was a good fireworks display from my view , in fact some neighbors with line of sight were gawking out the windows , it could definitely be seen from 1st ave to Harlem Ave on Roosevelt Rd.

Good show , maybe I'll check it out next year .

Sounds dangerous, an 8" shell with no-lift causing misfire could have caused serious injury or property damage.

I don't know who did what and where, but Thundercat Fireworks used to do North Riverside's Fireworks and they were the best in the industry. No on before or after them has held a candle to their displays!
