Thousands Flocked to the Waterfront for Burlington's Fireworks

Burlington, Vt. - Burlington’s waterfront Independence Day celebration was a day a fun, fireworks, and things to do, and thousands flocked to the waterfront.

The waterfront was patrolled heavily throughout the day. People were taking notice and were thankful.

"I see a lot of officers around so I feel like nothing is going to happen. I feel like we're all safe here," said Shealynn Lagerstedte of Northfield.

There was teenagers getting out of hand and they kind of stopped that immediately I thought that was great," added Michael Sartwell of Cornish.

Helping people celebrate the nation’s birthday and enjoy one of their favorite parts.

"Enjoying the food. You know... hanging out," said Lagerstedte.

Kids on the waterfront were looking forward to the fireworks.

"Excited and anxious," said 8 year old Hannah. "I like them super much," added 3 year old Olivia Sartwell.

And after hours waiting the show started and didn’t disappoint.
