It was a Fourth of July spectacle in the sky as the Jones Beach fireworks show returned to full glory.
The 25-minute nighttime spectacular drew in 125,000 people to the beach.
Garden State Fireworks put on the show that ignited about 5,000 shells -- that's about 200 shells per minute.
The fireworks were timed to a variety of music that ranged from patriotic classics to modern day hits.
"Stars and Stripes Forever" capped the show for its grand finale.
Some attendees said they loved how the fireworks were in synch with the music. One first-time spectator said she was uplifted when the final firework timed out perfectly to the final note of the National Anthem.
Other spectators loved that the weather was not too hot, which made them enjoy the show a lot more.
There was a large law enforcement presence at the event. Authorities said, however, that there were no issues.
