Experts: Fireworks shows take preparation, science
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- It takes months and months of preparation to put on what is deemed the largest firework show in the Central Valley.
Meet Richard and Jordan Hunter. The father-son duo have put on hundreds, if not thousands, of shows in the Valley.
"I'm more the low tech old school. My son is more into the high tech computerized shows," Richard Hunter said.
Action News caught up with them while they worked to set up tonight's big show at Buchanan High School.
It takes months to choreograph the some 20 minute display, months of technical studies ad science.
A long wire is attached to a power strip that Jordan will ignite from afar at the push of a button.
"We use an electronic show because I can say I want a 5 inch Nishiki Camaro to go off at a certain point in a song," Jordan Hunter said.
This is just a hobby for Jordan. By day he's a manager at Target. His dad is a reserve police officer but both of them are self-proclaimed adrenaline junkies who love everything explosive.
They say the fan favorites are the uniquely-shaped fireworks. They claim their explosives are so good you won't have a hard time seeing them.
Most people think you need a front row seat but the fireworks are hundreds of yards away so no matter where you sit, you'll have the best seat in the house.
