The 4th of July is this weekend and we are all looking for a big fireworks show to go to this year. But what if the show was super short?

You can see fireworks this weekend over a lake at Greeson Lake. You can see fireworks shows in Texarkana, Wake Village, and other surrounding towns with this story. If you are a pet owner here is how to keep your furry friends safe with all of the bangs and popping during the weekend fireworks.

Fireworks shows are one of my favorite things to do. This will be the first time in 25 years, with the exception of the pandemic, that I will be able to go see a fireworks show. We have been doing the Sparks in the Park for years but due to some budget cuts, the show will not be happening this year.

Most fireworks shows are around 30 minutes or so and the annual 'Sparks in the Park' show usually was between 18 and 20 minutes, but this colossal failure happened a few years ago in San Diego California.

Here is another view of this massive fireball.

The Garden State Fireworks team was in charge of the show that suffered this unbelievable mishap.

Three of the four barges in the water that the fireworks were to be fired from suffered 'premature ignition'. So the entire show, every shell went off in a 15-second grand finale ball of fire.

The show has had many successful shows in the years after that incident. Do you plan on attending any 4th of July Fireworks shows?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
