RICHMOND, Va. – A Richmond man and his brother got a unique view of the July 4 fireworks show over the James River. John and Matthew Nestler said they paddled down to Belle Isle and watched the show from the Hollywood Rapid.

The brothers used a GoPro to record the fireworks show.

“It was an amazing experience,” John said. “Smoke and fire radiated from the bottom of Belle Isle as we passed by, and the rapids added a whole different dimension to the experience.”
