Orrville Fireworks



Event Type(s): Festival , Special Events / Holiday
Organization: Orrville Firefighters Association

Orrville 2011 Orrville Firefighters fireworks display.


At approximately 10:15 p.m., all attention will be focused on the skies above Orrville, as they erupt into a fury of thunderous noise, beautiful color, and more thunderous noise in the form of the 2011 Orrville Firefighters fireworks display. This fireworks display, has the reputation of being the biggest and best show in the area, and 2011 will be no exception.

2011 is the 28th year the Orrville Firefighters Association has presented the Orrville Fireworks display working with Zambelli Fireworks Internationale to formulate a show that has something for everyone who loves fireworks. This year’s addition of the Orrville Firefighter’s Fireworks Display will kick off with an eye catching opening barrage specifically designed to recognize the City of Orrville School District.  The Orrville Firefighters Association has chosen to pay tribute to the Orrville City School District as a result of the cooperation and assistance the District provides to the OFFA in the completion of many of our community projects.  To say "Thank You" to the students, faculty, and administration – past and present - the opening barrage will paint the sky "RED & WHITE".   The red, white and thunder opener will include bursts of red dahlias with red tails, silver crossettes with silver tails, silver coconuts with rising tails, and earth shaking titanium salutes. In a short 71 seconds the Red Rider opening barrage contains nearly 400 individual pyrotechnic devices! Without a doubt spectacular start to the biggest show around.  A Big Thank You to all Red Riders!

The body of the fireworks show contains hundreds of shells of all types with every color imaginable, sparkling, crackling, whistling, and booming in the sky above Orrville. Show "specials" include Stars, Bow Ties with Rings, Saturn Rings with Rising Tails, and Crackling Spiders. As the show progresses, the pace and intensity builds to the finale.  Is it over...no way...just a pause to catch your breath, the best is yet to come! The pyrotechnic fury continues with volleys of big six inch shells building to a breathtaking GRAND FINALE that will be filled with every color and will shake the entire city and beyond.

In the event inclement weather is present on the date of the fireworks, the fireworks will be postponed to the next clear night at 10:15 p.m. The decision to postpone the fireworks will be made as early as possible on Sunday, July 3rd based on the weather forecast for the 10:00 time frame. Please check the Orrville Firefighters Facebook page or tune to local radio station WQKT 104.5 - WOOSTER for a cancellation notice.
