A barge in the Navy Yard is being packed with explosives ahead of this Friday’s fireworks show at Penn’s Landing.
Kevin Stead and his crew are working countless hours to make sure everything is set up perfectly.
“We have a full script of paperwork. Everything is mapped out very specifically. There’s a lot of hours that go into the planning of a show this size.”
Shells range from three inches in diameter to a volleyball-like 10 inch show-stopper.
“They’ll fire from three positions at a time, but it’s all computerchoreographed to the music.”
Fireworks will last about 12 minutes Friday night, beginning at 9:30 p.m.
KYW Newsradio is broadcasting the soundtrack for all three shows on Friday, Saturday and Monday.
