CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) - Thousands of people showed up at Centerville High School's football stadium Thursday night to watch the fireworks but they never happened.
However, they went off without a hitch Friday night!
The fireworks are part of Centerville's Americana Festival.
The festival's executive director Duke Lunsford tells us that Rozzi Fireworks is responsible for actually shooting off the fireworks.
On the Fourth of July, the company shot some test shells and everything seemed okay but then there was a computer glitch.
Lunsford says the fireworks and music are synced up and run by a computer, they are no longer manually lit by a person. After a full day of rain, the equipment wouldn't work because of moisture.
The company tells 2 NEWS it brought new equipment Friday night so it doesn't have the same problem.
While people say they're frustrated they had to wait one more night, they were still excited to see the show!
"We've been here about three years and we try to come here every year. Last night, we were just down the road and we didn't see the fireworks happen, so we went home, watched the news for awhile to find out that they had the technical glitch but you can't miss the Centerville fireworks. They're some of the best around, so we really enjoy them," explains Michael Schuyler.
"We came last night, we got here about 6 o'clock and had some good fun and waited and waited and then we waited a little bit more and they turned off the fireworks and closed them down. So, we thought we would just come back and give it a try again," says Ryan Black.
"We missed out yesterday because of the rain in a couple place. So, we saw on the news that this was not happening last night and it was happening tonight. So, a lot easier to get here and a lot closer and so we thought, we'd come up. This is our first time," comments Jane Gegner.
