Mitt Romney planned celebratory fireworks

Mitt Romney's campaign had planned to launch an eight-minute fireworks show over Boston Harbor had he won, the Boston Globe reports:

The Romney show had a patriotic theme, heavy on red, white, and blue colors, and featured crowd-pleasing large chrysanthemum bursts.

“It was not an intense, grand file-type of display for eight minutes, but it certainly was a fast-paced show to cap off the evening, if it were necessary,” Atlas Professional Fireworks Displays CEO Steve Pelkey told the Globe. The same company did the city's Fourth of July celebration.
