HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Thursday was a beautiful night for fireworks over the Capital City.

It was all part of the "Light the Night" fundraiser in Bushnell Park and was an event hosted by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

In addition to a fireworks show, thousands came out to walk with lanterns of different colors signifying their connection to LLS.

"It's just amazing to see this big group of people come together and help fight for a cure,” said Karley Wesner, of East Hampton.

Channel 3's Patricia Del Rio was the emcee of the event as well.
