Although he and his crew spent more than twelve hours working on the show Tuesday, that time is just a fraction of what it takes to put a successful show together.
"You know, there are about three or four hundred man hours that have gone into the production of this one show," Jergins explained.
The process is so time consuming because it's a lot more complicated than just wiring some shells together and launching them in the air.
"You select the music, you select the effect that goes with it, you put it all together, you pack it and then you get it out here and then you shoot it," he explained.
Jergins--who said this year makes his 38th year setting off fire works professionally--said all the hard work pays off when the show is over and he can hear the roar of applause, honks and horns from the thousands of onlookers.
