1,000 Shells in 20 Minutes: Biggest Fireworks Display in 18 Years Will Light Up the Sky Tonight

FREMONT – A Fremont tradition running 18 years strong will light up the night sky once again tonight, July 3rd, as the Fremont Community Fireworks display returns to Christensen Field.

Approximately 1,000 shells ranging from 8 to 12 inches will fly up to synchronized music (airing on The Best Mix 105.5) starting around 10PM tonight. With the weather expected to dry up and cool down to around 82°, it should be a perfect night for fireworks. The entire display should take around 20 minutes.

“We took it over 18 years ago,” said Ron Vlach, who organizes the fireworks show each year with the help of Midwest Fireworks out of Blair and many local businesses whose sponsorship dollars help pay for the show. “It just seems to get bigger and better every year.”

As many as 22,000 people are expected to watch this year’s show from various places throughout the city of Fremont. Viewers should be in for a treat, as there’s a special finale planned that even Ron doesn’t know the details of – it’s a surprise planned by the technicians at Midwest Fireworks. “The end of the show,” said Vlach, “they explained to me should be ‘breathtaking.”
