(WBIR - Downtown Knoxville) More than 400,000 people took to the streets of downtown Knoxville Sunday for Boomsday and the event's triumphant return to the Henley Bridge.
East Tennesseeans were treated to a half-hour long show where they got see fireworks burn bright above the Tennessee River.
For the last two years, organizers had shot the fireworks from other locations on the Tennessee River due to the rehabilitation project on the Henley bridge.
While this year's show was a success, organizers say they're already looking forward to what's to come next year.
"Well, there's been a lot of activity all day long and I think it's important for everybody to remember that this time next year we'll be back," said Kim Bumpas, executive director of Visit Knoxville.
But, fireworks weren't the only event at Boomsday this year. Festivalgoers were all treated to plenty of carnival games, music, and even a flash mob.
