East Montpelier fireworks company prepares for 4th of July

Posted: Updated:

The week of the Fourth of July is the busiest time of year for people in the fireworks business.

Northstar Fireworks of East Montpelier puts on shows all-around Vermont including Burlington's big event on the waterfront.

It takes all year to prepare for the Fourth of July rush and Northstar's owners say logistics is their biggest challenge.

"We've got 100 shows in a week. So we're trying to figure out 100 different crew members, 100 different trucks, making, designing 100 different shows, getting everybody on the road. I think that's the hardest part. The actual set up and shooting of the show is the fun part," said Tom Swenson, Northstar Fireworks.

Many communities hold their fireworks show on the fourth, but some, including Burlington and Montpelier do their shows on the third of July.
