Stadium of Fire 2011

No matter where we are in the world, every 4th of July, we WISH we were at the Stadium of Fire.

The Stadium of fire is the place to be.  PERIOD.  The last time we went was 10 years ago, so this event was long overdue for us!

The Stadium of Fire is held at the BYU football stadium and they fill the stadium with 50,000 people.  Tickets sell out within hours when they go on sale in March.  David was able to buy tickets the day before they went on sale to the public and we got GREAT seats!  The kids got a babysitter (who they LOVE) and we had a fabulous date night!

Entertainment included: David Archuleta and Brad Paisley!  The fireworks at the end were incredible!  The Stadium of Fire touts the largest fireworks display in the nation!  Take that DC!

(Sitting four rows in front of us was Steve Young, and several members of the Freedom Festival Board.  I think we got great seats.)

This was our view of the stadium.  I have some great footage (great if you consider the iPhone a great video camera that is) that I want to post.  One of these days I’m going to figure out how to edit and post videos . . .

On Sunday I ran into two of my childhood best friends!  Katie and Katie!  I love holidays!  Everyone comes in from out of state and we get to play!

It was so fun seeing our kids play together.  We had big dreams when we were younger that our kids would all play together one day and every once in a while that actually happens!

Katie’s little boy, Levi, just wanted to drive my car with his big cowboy boots on.  🙂  (Bossy little two year old!)

  1. I have to admit, I think I’ve only been once, when I was about 15. I don’t think they’ve ever had a musical guest I’ve wanted to see. Now, Sir Mixalot would be awesome.

  2. I’ve never been, but my parents have sung in the choir for two years in a row. They were on the front row! Of course, that meant that the fireworks were directly above their heads, and they couldn’t see, but hey! they got to be IN it!!! 🙂

  3. Hey There Emily:

    My name is Brad and I create and operate the fireworks show for the Stadium of Fire….done most of them over the history of the event. I check online thru-out the year to see what people have to say….so pleased that you enjoy the fireworks!! I’ll be back in 2012 and I want to invite you and David to come out to the stadium and contact me when we’re preparing the show that week and I’ll provide you with a grand tour of the fireworks production set-ups. Then you can enjoy the show even more in the future!
