Have you ever wondered what the Fourth of July Alabama Bicentennial Fireworks Show at Vulcan Park and Museum looks like “before” the big show begins at July, 4, 9:00 PM?
We got photos.
Yesterday, the day before the big show, Bham Now checked out the preparations for the biggest fireworks display in the state of Alabama.
All in all, just over 2,500 fireworks (that’s not a typo) will be launched from the in the Vulcan Park and Museum parking lot underneath Birmingham’s Vulcan statue for a spectacular 20 minute show.
Behind Vulcan Park
Produced by Pyro Shows of Alabama, setting up the fireworks show at Vulcan Park took less than a week.
The year’s show is particularly significant because it has been selected to host the Alabama Bicentennial Fireworks Show.
“We could not be more excited about having the Alabama Bicentennial 4th of July celebrated at Vulcan in the heart of Birmingham,” said Jay Lamar, Executive Director of the Alabama Bicentennial Commission. “It is such a historic place.”
Lamar noted that the Alabama Bicentennial celebration has been the longest in the nation, begging in 2017 and ending this upcoming December.
“This is one of the most important and exciting events to happen over the course of the Bicentennial commemoration – all three years. It will be a great evening with magnificent fireworks, and it will really get everyone in the spirit to celebrate the nation and Alabama.”
