“Western Winter Blast Pyrotechnics”

This post has taken a while because I was having trouble uploading the big video files. I hope someone watches the videos if only because I had to jump through so many hoops to get them online! : ) Below are both photos and videos.

I told Christi’s sister, who was nice enough to save us stadium seats, that all my life, I’ve compared every firework display I’ve ever seen to one I saw by the St. Louis Arch (shot from a Mississippi River barge!) as a teenager. None had ever remotely compared to it — until this one! But don’t judge from my amateur video – It’s nothing like being there. The displays were absolutely astounding!! Again, I highly recommend purchasing a grandstand ticket to this event. You will not be disappointed.
One more disclaimer: this is raw video – I didn’t edit at all. : )

They had “fire dancers” in between some of the pyro sets.
I was so glad I went with Christi to see the fireworks in the grandstand. It was something to see.
If I understood correctly, this show was actually an opportunity for different “pyro organizations” to “show their stuff”. I heard the earlier shows featured rookies.
Lots of Ooo’s and Ahh’s at the end of this one, for good reason.
The “fireballs” in these were *amazing*. We could feel the heat from them in the stands.
This set is to “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. I *think* it’s Andrea Bocelli singing. (My camera actually falls at the end of this one. Fortunately, it didn’t come all the way off the tripod.)
“Can’t Help Falling in Love”, cont’d. Love how the fireworks are synced with the song rhythm.
