After an explosive gender reveal party at a Kingston quarry this spring, town officials are announcing there will be a blast at Torromeo Industries on Wednesday.

According to the town's website, the blast will happen between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.

Anthony Spinelli, of Kingston, allegedly blew up 80 pounds of Tannerite and blue chalk at the Torromeo Industries quarry in Kingston on April 20 to announce the arrival of a baby boy.

Spinelli told police that they were at the quarry because they felt it was a safe location to detonate the Tannerite, but neighbors complained.

One neighbor said the blast cracked the foundation of their house.

Spinelli turned himself in and was charged with disorderly conduct.

A person can be found guilty of disorderly conduct in New Hampshire if they purposely cause a breach of the peace, public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or if they recklessly create a risk thereof by making loud or unreasonable noises in a public place, or make loud or unreasonable noises in a private place which can be heard in a public place or other private places, which noises would disturb a person of average sensibilities.
