Downtown crowds witness spectacular fireworks show

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

More than 100,000 people gathered in downtown Nashville to celebrate the nation's birthday Monday night.

This year's Let Freedom Sing festival featured performances by Darius Rucker and the Nashville Symphony.

The large crowds did make for a tough time getting home. Traffic was bumper-to-bumper on Broadway as drivers waited to get on interstates.

Metro police responded to at least 12 car accidents after the fireworks show.
