Assignment: A fortnight of fireworks
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created June 27, 2013 by
Nothing is more guaranteed to bring out the little kid in even the most jaded adult than a spectacular fireworks display that lights up the sky and the faces of everyone watching.
The month of July sees a fortnight of fireworks for a series of global celebration days -- from Independence Day in the U.S. and Bastille Day in France to massive fireworks competitions in Canada, Germany and elsewhere.
To honor this riot of explosions, color and general awesomeness, we want to see your best fireworks pictures and video from times past and present.
Was there one display you saw that blew your mind? (But hopefully didn’t singe your eyebrows)? Ever had a fireworks competition with neighbors? Send us your best images and video and you could be part of our coverage!
You can also post images on Instagram and use the hashtag #cnncelebrates
