Tens of thousands of East Texans gathered inside, around, and near Ellen Trout Park and Zoo Thursday evening for the annual 4th of July Extravaganza presented by Mike Love and Associates and the City of Lufkin.  The evening culminated with a dazzling 24 minutes fireworks display. 

The grand finale took nearly 3 minutes and although the beauty and power of the show is somewhat limited when filmed through an iPhone, take a look at the finale below.
