  • Putting the finishing touches on wiring the finale. Giovanni is putting tin foil over the finale shells to protect them. This keeps embers from the main portion of the show off the finale and prevents those embers from make the finale explode too soon. When the time comes, the shells will shoot right through the tin foil. Show starts in 30-45 minutes!

  • Our lead technician Aaron explains how this year's show is different than last year's and what you can expect tonight.

  • A behind-the-scenes look at how our awesome crew creates fireworks magic from the ground up.

  • Our offices are closed today, but we are definitely working to prepare for fireworks tonight! Follow us here on Facebook for up to the minute updates as the show gets close. Happy Independence Day from VLPRA!

They have volunteered work hours rebuilding storage sheds for our Special Olympics equipment and donated hundreds of dollars worth of food supplies for our Stocked Cart Race benefiting local hungry children. We so appreciate everything you do for us and the community. Thank you!

  • Come to Freedom Park tomorrow and Saturday to see some tournament baseball and cheer on VLPRA All Star teams! The Dizzy Dean South Georgia State Tournament for boys baseball begins Thursday, June 22nd. VLPRA will host three of the tournament’s six divisions. The 7 year olds, 8 year olds, and 10 year olds will play at Freedom Park with 14 teams from the South Georgia area competing. The championships will be Saturday, June 24th. The Dizzy Dean Georgia State Tournament for girl’s fast pitch softball begins Friday, June 23rd. VLPRA will host the 8u, 10u and 12u divisions. Sixteen teams from all over Georgia will compete in the state tournament that wraps up Saturday, June 24th. All the games will be at Freedom Park. In addition to hosting the tournaments, VLPRA also has several All-Star baseball and softball teams competing. VLPRA’s 7-year-old boys, 8-year-old boys, and 10-year-old boys will be playing in the South State Tournament at Freedom Park, while the Authority’s 6-year-old boys and 11-year-old boys will play in the same tournament at a different location, Lee County. VLPRA’s 8u and 12u fast pitch girls teams will compete in the State Tournament at Freedom Park. This tournament is the precursor to the World Series. In baseball, the top two teams from the state’s south division and the top two teams from the state’s north division advance to the Dizzy Dean World Series in Southaven, Mississippi in July. In softball, the top two teams overall advance to the DDWS. It is an honor to be selected for a VLPRA Dizzy Dean Team. Coaches nominate and vote on All-Star players to field the teams and represent our area in tournament play.
