Huge crowds from across the valley joined together at the Palm Desert Civic Center Park to take in the holiday with food, music and fun. People of all ages seemed to have a great time in the family friendly atmosphere.
"Fireworks were spectacular, loved them. Oh I'd say freedom, obviously celebrating Americas national holiday of freedom. It's special to me because I don't think in other places we'd be able to do things like this, so, spectacular," said Jim Lutz of Indio.
The fireworks show began at 9pm and went for about 20 minutes and finished with a spectacular finale that wowed the crowd.
