River of Fire Festival preview!

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA.--  Monday's holiday is also going to be the 30th Annual River of Fire Festival.

We got a behind-the-scenes preview of everything from the people running the show! the gates will open at 7:00 AM in Columbia Park, where there will be kid's activities, paddle board rentals, live music, food and craft vendors, and best of all, a fantastic fireworks show.

We spoke with the pyrotechnicians in charge of the fireworks, and thanks to these pros, we've got a lot to look forward to.

"We've just done a majority of all of the shows in the Northwest," pyrotechnician Richard Aspen told KNDU, "Everything from the mountains to the sea."

Richard, representatives of HAPO, and radio 102.7 KORD were all out on the docks in Pasco on Sunday preparing for River of Fire. Their main task? Safely loading all of the fireworks onto a barge which will sit out on the Columbia River on Monday.
