Flags, food and fireworks are the three "F's" of most folks' Fourth of July celebrations. Friday night, the sky was full of the last item on that list, as the city of Rochester hosted their annual fireworks celebration.

Hundreds of people gathered on the Main Street Bridge Friday night to check out the display. Before the explosives, the city also had plenty of music -- with performances by the Rochester Philharmonic and music from the band Shine.

Watch the video above to see a clip of the performance.
