Athens fireworks

Fireworks explode in the sky over Athens Thursday as part of the annual Red, White and Boom Fireworks Show. The show, which was supposed to have kicked off at 8 p.m., was delayed by an hour because of thunderstorms, which brought gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy rain. Despite the delay a number of patriotic revelers pack into parking lots near the Athens High School stadium to watch the display.
