July 4th Activities

My First Professional Fireworks Gig

This was an amazing day for me! I woke up knowing I would go out to Long Island but had no idea I would be helping my friend John Balsamo spending 9 hours wiring up fireworks. Besides getting a red neck I had the time of my life. The biggest payoff was sharing the event with many of our friends who came to the party to see what John does… pyrotechnics!


This video of the event was taken by my friend Yoram


The following photos are the first 75 in a set of 120.

    Great work guys! Very Nice Show. It looks like all the hard work and hours of wiring paid off. Did you have to start planning for next year yet? Thats quite a show you’ll have to top.
