While waiting for the July 4th fireworks to begin at the Huntington Beach pier, an even more spectacular display erupted in the adjoining neighborhood. I was surprised to see so many aerial fireworks. I remembered running around with sparklers as a child. No one was launching pyrotechnics to rival the pros. Seriously, this was more entertaining than the official fireworks show. However, after some research, the aerial fireworks may not have been safe and sane.
