Even in spite of the rain, the Light Cycle fireworks display went ahead. Of course, with so many fireworks, many residents called up 911 and 311 to ask what had happened, concerned and worried.

The event was sponsored by Haagen-Dazs. Gothamist doubts they will make a "Central Park Light Cycle" flavor - that's more Ben & Jerry's turf.

Updated: Reader rb gives us footage of the Ring (rb notes "supposed" ring). Why can Gothamist only think about "Before you die, you see the ring"?
