Baltimore Prepares for New Year's Eve Fireworks

Posted: Jan. 2nd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Everyone looking forward to the Inner Harbor New Year's Eve fireworks show in Baltimore to celebrate the ringing in of 2013 should rest easy, the fireworks are getting their last minute touches and everything is set to go for the event. With an expected crowd of more than 50,000, finding parking or a good place to sit should be your real concern.

Just before the clock strikes midnight, fireworks blast and Auld Lang Syne is sung–there are hours of work that go into preparation.

Gigi Barnett takes a look behind the scenes at this year’s fireworks display.

High in the sky over Baltimore’s Inner Harbor fireworks will mark the start of 2013. But before that, there is plenty of preparation.

Engineers from Pyrotecnico have worked around the clock, even in snow, to assemble two barges packed with nearly 2,000 shells of fireworks. Technician Ryan O’Neil says matching music to the light in the sky is tricky.
