Thousands of people attended. photographer Patricia Collins was on hand and snapped many of the images posted here, in the gallery to the right. Others have been submitted by readers. A video showing the last five-or-so minutes of the fireworks program is embedded below; it was shared by reader Bruce Weaver.
