NY Post Reveals Hillary Clinton’s ‘Triumphal Celebration’ of Fireworks on Election Night in NYC

screen-shot-2016-11-01-at-6-53-06-amAccording to a story by the New York Post, Democratic party nominee Hillary Clinton has planned a victory fireworks celebration over the Hudson River in New York City in the event of a big November 8th win.

The “barge-launched pyrotechnic display” would go off outside of the Jacob Javits Convention Center, where the campaign will be holding its election night rally on Manhattan’s west side. According to the Post, the fireworks can last for up to two minutes and can begin as early as 9:30 p.m. local time, though most networks will not likely declare an overall winner until after 11 p.m. at the earliest.

The Post also lays out the timing of the extravaganza, writing, “the Democratic presidential nominee’s blueprint for lighting up the sky was sketched out before last week’s revelation that the FBI had revived its probe of her private server scandal.” A memo obtained by the Post from the FDNY reveals that the Fire Department of New York City ordered stand-by protection on Friday for the event.

Republican nominee Donald Trump will also be holding his own election night festivities in New York City, the place where both historic campaigns officially kicked off in 2015.
