City and Precisions Fireworks renew $60K agreement for 2022

The Carlsbad City Council approved an agreement with a Texas fireworks firm for production of the 2022 Fourth of July show.

Carlsbad City Council approved a $60,000 agreement Oct.12 with Precision Fireworks for a choreographed aerial display next year in Carlsbad. Precision Fireworks has been the contractor for the event for three years.

“The (Carlsbad) Fire Department has been managing the Fourth of July Fireworks show for decades,” said Fire Chief Richard Lopez in a memo to City Council. “We took great pride in providing the best show possible for the City.”

The last fireworks show produced by the Carlsbad Fire Department was 2019. Lopez said Carlsbad firefighters decided to go with a professional company after personnel from the Roswell Fire Department were injured nearly three years ago after fireworks exploded while preparing for a show in Roswell.
