ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) Today is set up day for St. Cloud's big Fourth of July fireworks show.

St. Cloud Fire Chief Bill Mund tells KNSI News crews are getting read to move a barge that's been along Fifth Avenue to Wilson Park, then the pyrotechnics will be loaded onto the barge. Mund says Wilson Park is closed today. It will re-open tomorrow morning when the barge is placed into its shooting position in the middle of the river channel.

Mund says a professional pyrotechnics display company will be lighting the fuses for the show. He says it will be computer-controlled. The show will be about 20 minutes in length.
