The grand finale is always everybody's favorite part. (SCOTT LEFFLER / 
More bang for the buck. That's what city officials promised from this year's Independence Day fireworks at Outwater Park. And that's what people got.

The city's annual fireworks spectacular, which lit the skies over the city's north end, started with a boom at around 9:45 p.m. and ended in much the same manner.

Red, white, blue — and every other color — shot forth from the area between North Park Middle School and the Outwater Park baseball diamond, lighting the sky and causing spectators to gaze upward.

Many in attendance said the fireworks were better than ever. Others aren't so easily impressed.

The crowd was notably smaller than in previous years. But many of those in attendance arrived early and took part in games or activities in the park. Several gorged themselves on fried dough and ice cream from food vendors at the park.

Earlier in the day, a Family Fun Day was held with free games and bounce houses for the kids. The event, part of the city's nine-day-long Sesquicentennial Celebration, was well attended.
