Covington, Georgia celebrated its 200th anniversary with a fireworks display on July 4th.

"You'll see something you've never seen before," Robert Foxworth, president of Friends of Covington Fireworks, told the news channel.

“We worked all day Saturday on installation, launching the bullets, loading the racks, wiring everything,” Foxworth explained.

"We work 8, 9, 10 hours a day sometimes ... but we do."

Over 10,000 people from all over the state had come here to celebrate Independence Day and the city's 200th anniversary.

It was 21 minutes of pure American entertainment after months of preparation.

"Over $ 40,000 is just people and companies donating money," Foxworth said. "The coldness people feel and just the look in their eyes ... that tells the story."

"This is our first time here in Covington ... It's great to be with the family and celebrate the 4th of July," contestant Kim Viner told a news channel.

These festivities also included live entertainment and games in Town Square, Covington, Georgia.
