Fireworks preparation

Chris Linder of Zambelli Fireworks places mortar tubes along the beach on Tuesday, July 2, in preparation for Cedar Point’s Fourth of July fireworks, which will ignite the night beginning at 10:30 p.m. Thursday. Employees from Zambelli, based in New Castle, Pa., will fill the mortar tubes with more than 1,500 shells, which are wired to a firing board. The set-up for the show involves more than 200 man hours over several days. In addition to its famous fireworks show, Cedar Point will salute the U.S. Armed Forces July 4-7 by offering free admission to all active, retired or honorably-discharged military members with valid ID. Members of the Armed Forces can also purchase discounted tickets for their immediate family members for $39.99, saving $15.
