For the record, the Turley firework display last night for the neighborhood went off without a hitch –even with the oppressive heat. We were a bit more successful than San Diego’s “Big Bay Boom” after a glitch triggered all of the fireworks to explode at the same time. A twenty minute shows was reduced to 15 seconds.
August Santore of Garden State Fireworks told CNN: “This is very uncommon. There was nothing in the pyrotechnics that went wrong. It was the electronics.”
It will be interesting to learn what the contractual agreement states about a mishap like this. After all, all of the fireworks did go off. People were just hoping for a bit longer of a show.
The Port of San Diego tweeted: “We sincerely apologize for the technical glitch that affected the #BigBayBoom. Event producers are currently investigating the cause.”
