Forkfest 2020 Video: 42nd Year of Independence Day Fireworks @ Roger’s Campground

At Forkfest this year, I had the chance to interview Joel White, the pyrotechnician who has been putting on an annual Independence Day fireworks show at Roger’s Campground in New Hampshire now for forty-two years! Also spoke with Crosby Peck, park owner, about the history of the campground. Then I recorded the full fireworks show.

The video pales in comparison with the actual fireworks in real life, but apparently no one has ever recorded the full show before and I told Joel I’d send him the video, so here it is, for what it’s worth. It was a fantastic show, and an excellent way to close out a great week of Forkfest 2020!

  1. The first part of this vid is the interview, followed by the fireworks.

    Great interview, interesting history, some honest feedback about the conduct of Forkfest and Porcfest attendees, and nice Independence Day fireworks display that just feels real because its provided Independently without using stolen funds (taxes.)

  2. It looks like it was a good time.

  3. Irony = People at a town meeting arguing over how much stolen tax money to allocate for “4th of july fireworks celebration” .

    Irony reminder = People at same town meeting being reminded the celebration is supposed to be celebrating independence from taxation.
