The gender reveal party took place at gender reveal party at Torromeo quarry.
A gender reveal party prompted a huge explosion that neighbors compared to an earthquake, according to police.
The expectant family from Kingston, a town not far from the Massachusetts border in New Hampshire, set off such a blast that it could be heard across the state line.
Kingston Police responded to reports of the loud explosion on Tuesday evening and found people who were holding a gender reveal party at Torromeo quarry where they were found with explosives.
“We heard this God-awful blast,” Sara Taglieri, who lives in a home that abuts the quarry, told the NBC Boston. “It knocked pictures off our walls … I’m all up for silliness and what not, but that was extreme.”
“It was earth-shaking,” said another neighbor on the road said.
