(KSL News) A 12-year-old boy's ideas for a fireworks show will come to life at this year's Stadium of Fire.

Chase Manning wrote the winning essay describing how he would design the fireworks for this year's show.

Organizers liked the design and met with him today to bring his ideas to life. Manning said, "I thought that was a pretty cool thing, because that is probably every person's dream to do a part of a fireworks show."

So how will the fireworks show end? Manning says, "At the end, I would like to do a smiling face with a white circle with two blue fireworks, and go up, and just kind of stay there and then a red semicircle to make it more like a smiley face."

You can see Manning's fireworks on July 4 at Lavell Edwards Stadium.
