Gender reveal party using 80 pounds of explosives shakes New England town


KINGSTON, NH – A New Hampshire family’s gender reveal party was such a blast it rocked towns, sparked reports of an earthquake, and could be heard across the border state, police said.

Police in Kingston, a town not far from the Massachusetts border, received reports of a large explosion on Tuesday evening. They responded to Torromeo’s quarry, where they found people who admitted to throwing a gender reveal party with explosives.

The source was Tannerite – 80 pounds of it, police said. The family believed the quarry would be the safest place to detonate the explosive, which is typically sold over the counter as a target for practicing firearms, police said.
