“It will be the only fireworks show in Houston on July 4th,” said Susan Christian, director of special events at the mayor’s office.
The crews at Pennsylvania’s Pyrotecnico spent Sunday finalizing setups for Monday night’s show, which is expected to pack quite a punch.
“We got 6,700 shots and all in 17 minutes and 45 seconds,” said Pyrotecnico’s Alexander Smith.
Each of these recordings is set to a musical soundtrack featuring patriotic classics and more.
The last two pyrotechnic shows at Shell Freedom Over Texas were conducted with the goal of getting the fireworks as high in the air as possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The city’s last two events on July 4th saw no crowds, so visibility had to be increased.
Some of the fireworks will return closer to the ground this year as the event operates at full capacity.
“Something to get personal with instead of looking up into the air from afar,” Smith said.
If you’re not planning on coming to Shell Freedom Over Texas, Christian says there are places around town where you can get a pretty good look at the show.
She says if you can see the west side of the city’s skyline, you get a nice view of the show.
You can also catch the fireworks on ABC13 as we are the exclusive TV home of the event!
You can watch the show with music by Sawyer Brown, Blanco Brown and Clay Walker on July 4th at 7pm.
