And the rockets’ blue glare …

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – “Lights on the Lake” lit up the sky above South Lake Tahoe on the night of the Fourth of the July with dancing, sparkling fireworks.

The 22-minute display featured fireworks that looked like cubes, jellyfish, hearts, happy faces and palm trees.

Ken Nixon, the president of Pyrodigital Consultants, Inc. who has designed fireworks displays at the lake for nearly the past 30 years, said he has always emphasized quality over quantity during the performances.

Nixon designed this year’s computer-controlled show in May.

The shells were a mixture of U.S., Chinese, Japanese, Italian and Spanish varieties, Nixon said.
