Layton Liberty Days Fireworks Display on July 4th - Press Release

Article Published 07/06/2015

The Layton Liberty Days Fireworks Display on July 4th did have a malfunction with the finale. A private company certified by the State Fire Marshal’s Office does the fireworks shoot and reported that a hot ball from a firework lit an exposed fuse for the finale. This caused the finale to go off prematurely at the beginning of the show. The City expresses our apologies for the performance mishap. However, all fireworks did get discharged but unfortunately at the wrong time. An investigation is still ongoing to determine how this could have been prevented and secure future shows from this error.  Our shows are over 15,900 shells and very impressive.
