Rocket science, fireworks, patriotism and beer are the essential ingredients for a good ol' Rocket City Rednecks Independence Day celebration. Oh, and don't forget the stump remover and confectioner's sugar needed for the homemade rocket fuel. The Rednecks put on a Fourth of July fireworks display using their own rocket fuel and a self-engineered computer program to remotely control the fireworks.
