One of the biggest fire works display in the Rio Grande Valley was on the island and crews were busy getting ready for the island's big fireworks extravaganza.
The fireworks were put in place on a barge in the bay and the show consists of over 1,000 fireworks. Organizers say the grand finale will include 400 fireworks in 30 seconds. Six pyro technicians will be running the Independence Day show from a laptop. Louie's Backyard, Amberjack's and Tequila Sunset will be providing the music.
Sandra Marshall says, these type of shows are a great and safe way to celebrate the 4th of July.
