Behind the scenes with…Mason Meyer, Zambelli Fireworks

Each night of the Fair, more than 2,000 shells of fireworks light up the skies above the Midway. Even during a light drizzle, the display can be described as “awesome.” What most people don’t know is that it takes a lot of work to make sure the fireworks go off at 9:45 nightly. I spent some time with the crew from Zambelli Friday afternoon to see how they prepare for the nightly show. Mason Meyer explains in this video:


There’s only one day left to see the fireworks. Don’t miss your chance to be “A Whole Lotta Happy” at the N.C. State Fair.

About Bearded Lady

Paul Jones blogged for the 2009-2012 N.C. State Fairs. Here's his bio from 2009: Paul Jones, here (a.k.a. Bearded Lady). I love the N.C. State Fair. I love the rides, I love the food, but my favorite part of the Fair is the displays of the unusual. The two-headed snake, the world’s smallest woman, the world’s tallest horse and the list goes on. Originally from South Carolina, I hope that I can bring a different perspective to this blog as I shed light on some of the ordinary, yet extraordinary, aspects of this year’s Fair.
