Red, White and Boom!

Posted: Updated:

 

Red, White and Boom! Went off without a hitch tonight in the Quad Cities despite some flooding problems organizers had to deal with.
     
The fireworks were set off Centennial Bridge this year,.

Officials estimated about 2,000 people were there for tonight's event. 

A lot of people said it's disappointing they can't watch the fireworks on the river this year but it didn't stop them from coming out. 
     
Event-goers also had to deal with several street closures around town today for the event but drivers say it wasn't as big a hassle as they thought it would be.

"It was an adventure," said Sean O'Brien. "Trying to get through it all with 2nd Street being closed now and the event being moved up and all the road construction and everything else. It was fun."
