Thursday night, the Festival on the Fourth powered through some rainy and dreary conditions, massive fireworks show went on as planned.

PyroShows, the fireworks organizer, said they would continue this show rain or shine.

The rain also didn't scare away the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra who played patriotic music as part of the festivities.

"It's usually the sun and the fun and the entertainment," said longtime festival goer James Sparks.

Organizers came prepared to use their emergency plans in case severe weather came. Good news, they didn't have to use them.
