When one of this town’s most beloved Fourth of July traditions was at stake, their religious community stepped up to help.

Due to the financial issues of Visalia, California, the city was preparing to drop its fireworks display because it couldn’t afford the festivity’s $10,000 price tag.

When they mayor of the city mentioned the dilemma to a local Sikh man, however, he said that the Sikh community would be more than happy to supply the extra funds.

“Visalia considers this to be very generous and helpful. We appreciate their show of patriotic support, as one of our newer groups of American citizens,” Visalia Mayor Warren Gubler told NBC News.

Thanks to the donation, the 120,000 Californian city residents were able to enjoy a dazzling fireworks display that they’ll never forget.
