Having a blast
About eight ounces of black power is ignited to blast a 75-pound steel anvil into the air during a demonstration of explosives at a Halloween festival at the Henry Estate Winery near Roseburg, Ore., on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012. Anvil shooting or blasting was once a popular small town American tradition.
JESSE EMERSON lets spectator MARY JO SMITH ignite about four ounces of black powder as he shoots a pumpkin from a cannon during the demonstration.
