It may be a "marshmallow world in the winter," as the song says, but the sky above Brazil will turn popcorn-colored this fall, on Sept. 30.

Actually, you will have to wait until dark to see the sky colored by yellow and white (OK, gold and silver) fireworks.

Mark Adamson, of Aerial Arts Fireworks, told the Popcorn Festival of Clay County committee about his plans during Thursday's meeting .

There will be other colors in the fireworks display, of course, but watch for some of the rockets to be reminiscent of Orville Redenbacher's favorite treat.

The Popcorn Festival, named for one of Clay County's favorite sons, Orville Redenbacher, continues to grow. During the past year, it was featured on a Foods Network program produced by Al Roker Productions. Roker is the formerly rotund weather man on NBC's Today show.

The Popcorn Festival of Clay County is set for Sept. 29-30 and Oct. 1 with most of the activities at Forest Park.
