In what was a splendid display of fireworks and culture, the Russians gave the world a view of their history and life. While most of the moments were difficult for viewers to follow, one thing that wasn't hard to understand was the amazing fireworks display.

The Olympics Opening Ceremony fireworks were just as dramatic as in previous Olympic Games. Kicking off when the Olympic Cauldron was lit and continuing for a good five minutes, the fireworks were above the stadium around the lit cauldron and even seen in the distance. Even if athletes were not in attendance for the moment, they could still peek out their windows to see the lights in the sky.

Surprisingly, the Olympics Opening Ceremony kicked off with a few fireworks as well. Nothing as dramatic as the ending, but still very entertaining. Offering up plenty of excitement with some great music, it was a great way to get the crowd going for the three hour celebration of the Olympic Games.
