Transcript Power of Houston Festivities Houston's Pride is a Bang To commemorate and share the power and diversity of Houston and its people, the Mayor's Official Fall Celebration, Power of Houston was presented at the Great Tastes of Houston. But it was more than just entertainment. The Goal of Houston Industries Power of Houston '97 was to pull together as a city and help solve community isssues. So the proceeds will benefit such orginizations such as, Houston Promise, Houston Proud, The RudyTomjanovich Fund, and many others. The Power of Houston lasted from September 15-21, and consisted of concerts, dances and competitions. However, the highlight of the celebration was the laser light and fireworks show, the largest ever on the continent. Nearly one millon people were downtown to see the 20-minute show, which cost $4 millon for the 12 tons of fireworks, lights and lasers used. Once the Righteous Brothers finished their performance the extravanganza began. The fireworks shot off and covered nearly 144 square blocks of downtown Houston. Junior psychology major Monica Hinojosa was one of many University of Houston students who saw the fireworks and admired the beauty of the show. "It was really nice and I had never seen anything like it, not even in the Fourth of July festivities," Hinojosa said. — She watched the show with her cousins while sitting on top of a car. Sully Robs, a freshman University Studies student, watched the show from a different point of view- - a park on Allen Parkway. Robs, who was with his family and a foreign exchange student they are hosting, thought "the laser lights were well designed." He added the show was great for the city and it should happen more often. Whether one saw the spectacular event from a park, stuck in a traffic jam or on television, all of Houston focused attention on downtown, celebrated the spirit of the city and showed Houston pride. "It was really nice and I hail never seen anything like it, not even in the Fourth of July festivities," Ifenica Hinojosa September Fireworks are going off with a bang in downtown Houston. The Power of Houston extravaganza lifted the spirits of Houstonians, and brought attention to the city. Photo by Edmond Vahedi Power of Houston
