We all love the Fourth of July, because it means our year long wait for awesome fireworks is over and we can enjoy a full day of fun, food and friends, to be followed by fire works!

But as you can see from these videos, it's not always what we expect.

The first video, shot in 2015, is from Avon, Colorado. There were nine people injured during this unfortunate mishap.

(Note: mild expletive heard at the beginning of this video)This video, from Fairplay, Colorado shows the fireworks actually going off on the ground. One firefighter was injured in this unfortunate accident.

And in the video below, while no one was injured, the truly incredible view of an entire fireworks display going off on the ground. An amazing sight to be sure.

Be safe with your fireworks this year. And enjoy your Independence Day celebrations!
