The whole show is the grand finale.

This video comes to us from Midland, Texas. The local police, in conjunction with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, conducted a controlled demolition of approximately 20,000 pounds of illegal fireworks. The result is one of the weirdest, yet somehow most patriotic, fireworks displays we've ever seen.

There are a couple things to take away from this video. One is that Texans love their fireworks. 20,000 pounds is a massive amount. And that's just what the cops were able to confiscate. There could be mushrooms clouds like this popping up all over the state.
