FOX 5’s Andrew Luria with Tim Ney of the ASYMCA

In this episode, we explore the heart and soul of the Big Bay Boom fireworks show, including what it means to San Diego, and what it means for San Diego. The show not only brings in half a million people to America’s Finest City, but it also brings in millions of dollars for local businesses.  It raises money for military families who benefit from the Armed Services YMCA as well.

We speak with Sandy Purdon, the founder of the Big Bay Boom, as well as Sam Bruggema, the man behind the fireworks, and Tim Ney of the ASYMCA about what the show has done for San Diego, and what is in its future.
