owntown skies will light up tonight
to celebrate the nation's 237th birthday.

And for the second year, the Greater
San Antonio Chamber
of Commerce is sponsoring a Hemisfair Park fireworks show. They've hired Neal Schaniott with Pyro Shows to design the display.

"We'll start out slowly and then build up as the show goes on and then at the end there will be a big finale; the last minute of the show will be really intense," he says.

"There are smiley faces and hearts and
brocade crowns where they hang in the
air and then slowly fall down; everyone
seems to like them."

Chamber staff suggests getting to Hemisfair Park early with your blankets and chairs.
The sparks start at 9:30pm.

The 20 minute show will
splash across the night sky
right above the Tower of Americas.
