Crowds had gathered at West Park, at 4500 S. 2900 West, for the annual festival that always concludes with a fireworks show. But at the end of this show’s explosive finale, a stray firework launched sideways — flying about 4 to 5 feet above the ground — went between the fire department vehicles and blew up near a crowd of about 60 people, said Roy Fire Chief Jason Poulsen.
