Fireworks Shows..How Do They Do That

I went behind the scene of the Georgetown Harbor Maryland fireworks shoot to see exactly how it was done. Most people, myself included, have watched fireworks displays year after year never knowing how much work is done by the professionals who make it happen. I hope this video gives you an better appreciation for your fireworks displays.

Rich , very interesting. That 6" shell reminded me of a bee hive.

Well at least I know how they get the distance part.

Enjoy the day

Rich good idea to go 'behind the scenes' on how the fireworks are done.  Great hyper-local post!  Good to see how they do set these up safely.  Wow - 1,000 fireworks - that must have been some show...

Dear Rich,

Reminds me of the town fireworks we see every 4th.  Lots of work and lots of prep.
Thanks for the explanations.

Have a happy day -

My kids put on a huge show for the family every year and sit out at a table taping and tieing things together all day.  But we don't ever do 1,000 shoots.  Wow!

You know, there are some jobs that I wouldn't mind trying, but I don't think I would like to have their job.  It looks scary and dangerous, although your blog and video was extremely fascinating.  Thanks for the insight.  I was sent to your blog by Russel Ray, and I am suggesting and reblogging it.
