The First Part of the Party

We were invited to a Fourth of July fireworks party last night. Fireworks are illegal in Iowa, but this was put on by a licensed pyrotechnician. This private show rivalled many of the displays put on by local authorities.

Here is a battery of three inch mortars being loaded and primed.

The six inch mortar tubes have to be set several feet into the ground.

Here is a six incher being loaded into the tube.

The fireworks setup.

We got to shoot some really cool guns. While waiting for dark, there was shooting, hula hooping, music, fun, food, and, I believe, some drink.
