SAN DIEGO (AP) — Organizers of a San Diego fireworks display that went up in a flash on July 4 won't do a make-up show.
Instead, they'll use $125,000 worth of free fireworks to enhance next year's "Big Bay Boom."
Garden State Fireworks offered the freebies after a computer glitch caused all 7,000 of its pyrotechnics for this year's show to go off at once. Instead of a quarter-hour, the popular waterfront show lasted 20 seconds.
In an email Thursday, organizer Sandy Purton told U-T San Diego that even with free fireworks, the show costs up to $250,000 to put on and it made no sense to try raising that much in donations twice in one year.
Instead, Purton says organizers will try to make the next Fourth of July show even bigger.
