We are very happy to be working with Jeff Rolfe and the PyroFx team again this year!

This December 31st, in the heart of New York City’s Times Square, one of the crews from Pyro/Fx will be high above the revelers, once again counting down the final seconds of the year before launching a colorful pyrotechnic display off the side of the building high atop 1 Times Square. “We are very happy to be working with Jeff Rolfe and the PyroFx team again this year!” states Jeff Straus, president of Countdown Entertainment LLC and co-organizer with the Times Square Alliance of the Times Square New Year’s Eve Celebration. “They are total pros,” said Tim Tompkins of the Times Square Alliance.

New Year's Eve in Times Square is an epic event. The revelers will be entertained throughout the night by star-studded musical performances including Lady Gaga. Hourly countdowns on the ToshibaVision sign below the Ball accompanied by Pyro/FX’s fireworks effects build the excitement as the revelers anticipate the final countdown to the New Year.

With 60 seconds to go nearly one million revelers will be gathered in Times Square and over a billion television viewers will watch the final seconds count down to the world’s most famous New Year’s celebration. The iconic Waterford crystal Times Square Ball will slowly descend the pole to mark the end of 2011 and the beginning of the New Year as the numerals 2012 light-up along with a spectacular fireworks show above Times Square
“Intense” is the one word, Pyro/Fx’s Chief Operating Officer, Jeff Rolfe says best describes the display. “With the world focused on the final 60 seconds of the year, the timing of the devices cannot be 100th of a second off” says Mr. Rolfe. An amazing feat when you consider the display is computer controlled but the actual firing is still done manually. This will be Mr. Rolfe’s sixth year doing the display as the show’s pyrotechnic designer and lead technician for the event. Months of planning, design, and preparation by this incredible team for the final two-minute pyrotechnic display that will brilliantly illuminate the sky above the Times Square revelers. “This year we will use more custom-mixed colors and some new effects to paint the New Year’s Eve night sky.” said Mr. Rolfe
