Short Fireworks Show near Hoboken

Residents and visitors were surprised by an impromptu fireworks display right off the Hudson River shorelines in Hoboken.

My initial guess it was a test run for the fireworks that will follow the Mumford & Sons Concert on August 1st – but then again, there’s always some special cause for fireworks on the Hudson going on (gay rights, save the puppies, Chet & Biffy getting married at some yacht club, etc.)

But in this case – it was actually a scheduled fireworks show on the NYC side near Pier 54.

Sponsored by some watch company called TW Steel USA.

Below is a quick video I TRIED shooting of the finale – however it may be a bit shaky because Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar goes berserk over fireworks (his only flaw).
