Stadium of Fire, the largest stadium fireworks show in America kicks off tonight with an archer shooting a flaming arrow into the night sky. This is a huge event that many of David’s fans will be coming from far and wide to attend. The show will feature over 1000 dancers and a fly-over from Hill Air Force Base.
It will be a spectacular evening of fireworks, patriotism and of course, music. The crowd at LaVell Edwards Stadium is estimated to number 50,000. Outside the stadium “we expect 250,000 people on every piece of green grass in Provo and Orem,” says Eric Rasband, UDOT’s traffic lead on the I-15 Core Project.

This will be the largest stage ever constructed for this event, 150 feet wide and 40 feet high!
Emory Cook, communications manager for the Freedom Festival, said he doesn’t think Paisley and Archuleta know what to expect before they come to the stadium. “I think they don’t know what they are getting themselves into, how special this is, until they are here and experience the atmosphere,” Cook said. “The show will be broadcast to over 1 million military personnel all over the world on the American Forces Network,” Cook said.
Considering the events of late, I don’t think we as David’s fans know what to expect either. Every time we think he’s done everything he can, he gives us more. Tonight and all weekend long, we celebrate the country’s hard-won independence. As fans of David Archuleta, we celebrate another kind of independence that this event will showcase. His independence as an artist.

It’s good to be alive, spending time with family and friends, waiting up for videos again. Hope to see many of you in chat tonight as we fanticipate together the fireworks to come!
