The Henley Bridge will once again host the Boomsday celebration this Sunday, and fireworks organizers are getting the explosives ready.

Pyro Shows will have 20 crew members on hand this Sunday working the show.

The fireworks are being shot from the Henley Bridge again this year now that most of the rehab work on the bridge is complete.

Organizers say a common mistake for spectators is to sit too close to the display. The fireworks launch 600 feet in the air, so they should be visible from just about anywhere in town.

This year there will be five tons of explosives.

"That's a lot, especially in a little confined area on a bridge, and that's what makes Boomsday special. It puts the boom in Labor Day," said Garrett Hill.

If you can't make it out to see the fireworks on the riverfront don't worry, you can watch them live on Channel 10.Our annual Boomsday special begins this Sunday night at 9.
