LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – A little after 2 pm, Pyro Shows fireworks crews left out for their Friday night launch sites; Downtown La Follette, the Roane State campus, school house hill at Jacksboro, Norris Lake at Springs Dock, Downtown Jellico and Cove Lake State Park.
The son-in-law and father-in-law team of Justin Chapman (left) and Brian Nelson will spend a few hours getting set for the Downtown La Follette shoot. Chapman said, “We’ve already done a lot of prep before we made it over here this afternoon.”
La Follette Police Officer Isiah Lawson said he’ll probably work through tonight’s show.
Officer Lawson set up barriers to give Pyro Shows some elbow room between the Main Street Shell and the former West La Follette School.
