Hey did anyone see the show this year?

We watched from a boat and saw some explosions on the barge.

Did anyone get hurt?

They still finished the show and it was probably the best show I have ever seen in Decatur. Did anyone else think it was?

I watched it from St Marys but did not see any explosions on the barge.

The show was better then ever. I think they have a new shooter because the last few years the shows have been amazing.

Sorry for the late reply, a few years late. Just found this online. I was the shooter for that show in 2010. Yes there was a small explosion on the barge. A large cake in the middle of the barge malfunctioned and blew the case off of the cake. Laying all 100 tubes in a circular fan formation shooting small shells all over the place. Nobody was in any danger as we stand behind a makeshift barricade behind the firing panel. The incident was more amusing then scary. That was my 4th year shooting that show and thanks for the compliments. We dont do Decaturs show anymore due to them trimming the budget we worked hard many years for them to increase. We now do strictly the MtZion Show every year so come out and see us.
