‘One nice show,’ tonight

LIHUE — Mark Fritzen of J&N Displays West said the Kauai Hospice “Concert in the Sky” is going to be one nice show.

“Everything will be synchronized to music,” Fritzen said. “We’re laying it out to give viewers a 3D effect, and this year, for the first time, we’re using a wireless firing system to trigger everything.”

Fritzen got help from Justin and Kari Seedle of Cincinnati, Ohio and Donovan Kenney from Kauai’s Westside in setting up the clusters of mortars for the 15-minute pyrotechnic display which will take place about 8:30 tonight during the Kauai Hospice fundraiser.

Gates open at 4 p.m.

“This is the fifth year I’m helping them,” Kenney said. “I started my first time when J&N did the display at the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Mana. They’ve done the base twice, and they’ve done the Kauai Hospice three times before. We also did the Poipu display, once.”

Fritzen, of Chicago, said for safety reasons, people are not allowed inside the stadium area, or in the proximity of the fenced outfield area of the stadium. The layout of the different mortar clusters will allow spectators to get the 3D effect without the use of special glasses.
