Another year has come and gone, and with it, the remnants of the 2011 Fireworks Festival that was held at the Casper Events Center. Approximately a million people (ok, maybe not that many) came out to see amazing bands, eat incredible food, and drink adequate beer.

There was music, sword fights, vendors, funnel cakes, and more, but the main event, of course, was the fireworks display. With a duration of more than 15 minutes, the fireworks display this year may have been the best ever. Kids, families, couples, and even the occasional loaner bore witness to a tradition that goes back decades- that of the celebration of this country's independence through the lighting of fireworks. If you weren't there, shame on you.
