The crew of Fireworks Productions of Arizona began setting up more than 4,000 shells for the Paradise Casino fireworks show, which is also the second largest in the state, at about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and continued to work until the last firework was launched into the air around 9:55 p.m. “We want to make sure the show is big enough so everyone in Yuma can see it,” said Joe Rivera of Fireworks Production of Arizona.
