The Star Storm fireworks display in Alexandria on Friday night drew oohs and aahs from onlookers on water and on land.

The fireworks were lit from the lawn of Arrowwood Resort and Conference Center over Lake Darling and sponsored by KXRA Radio, which played patriotic music that coordinated with the display.
