Who Knew? Fireworks Better In Winter
Many New Hampshire towns and cities usher in the new year tonight with fireworks displays. Turns out, winter is actually a great time of year for shows.
"The fireworks burn much cleaner. The colors are a bit brighter, because you don’t have the humid air," says Stephen Pelkey, CEO of Atlas Pyro Vision. "And it just makes for a wonderful backdrop."
The Jaffrey-based company is putting on 35 shows across New England tonight. Check local listings for events in your area.
