Captain Rick: I love fireworks on the 4th of July. I seek the world’s grandest fireworks finales for presentation in Captain Rick’s YouTube ‘4th of July Celebration’ playlist: The fireworks finale in Nashville Tennessee in 2012 currently holds first place as presented below:

I have personally witnessed 4th fireworks finales in many large cities across America during the past half century. The only one that came close to the awesome power of the Nashville finale was the 1999 ‘Fabulous Fourth’ display in downtown Phoenix, which I witnessed from a block from ground zero. It was the greatest experience of ‘power’ that I have every witnessed, second only to a Space Shuttle launch in the early 80’s.

The 2012 Nashville finale was more massive and lasted considerably longer. I would have loved to have witnessed it in person from near ground zero. Fortunately we now have high definition video. The Nashville Finale is viewable in full screen 1080 HD with HD sound. Watch it full screen on your HDTV or HD widescreen monitor with the sound cranked way up. If you have a Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound…its even more realistic…almost like being at ground zero.

If you have witnessed a 4th of July fireworks finale, or have viewed one on YouTube, that is as great as the one presented above, please comment below with a link to it for consideration to be added to Captain Rick’s ‘4th of July Celebration’ YouTube playlist…which will grow to become the world’s grandest collection of fireworks finales.

I present a video I shot of the 1999 Phoenix ‘Fabulous Fourth’ fireworks finale along with some interesting dialog in comments for this post.
