The expected streaming of live video from the Sailfest fireworks show on the theday.com did not occur Saturday night because of a technical problem.

As the show began, viewers watching it on theday.com saw the words, "Off Air."

The problem was caused by the oversaturation of area cell towers, according to Joe Thibeault, whose company, Iron Horse Web & Media Solutions, was hired by Cumulus Broadcasting to provide the live stream.

A full video of the event is now available.
