The weather held off for Boomsday this weekend, and Monday night another East Tennessee community finally got to shoot off some fireworks, but they were about two months behind schedule.
LaFollette celebrated the Fourth of July on Labor Day this year after the wet summer pushed back their original Independence Day fireworks show.
The show started at 8:30, and people lined up along 25W to get a good look as PyroShows blasted hundreds of shells over the course of about 20 minutes. Since the fireworks were originally supposed to be shot on the Fourth, they contained plenty of red, white and blue.
LaFollette mayor Mike Standfield said he expected anywhere between 4,000 and 10,000 people to show up for the show. He also said the production can be expensive, about $10,000, so they wanted to make sure plenty of people could enjoy it.
LaFollette was one of several cities forced to postpone their Fourth, but most other cities tried to reschedule for a date in July.
