Blast with a beat: Fireworks show set to music

Sunday Times Newspapers

TRENTON — Fourth of July fireworks at Trenton’s Rotary Park is nothing new, a tradition of more than 30 years’ standing, Parks and Recreation Director Joann Perna said. This year, however, the spectacle will be set to music.

“It’s going to be a huge show, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Fritz Enterprises,” Perna said. “This is the first year they will be choreographed to music.”

The fireworks beginning at dusk on Wednesday will be set to music and simulcast on WXYT-FM 87.7, and also amplified for all to hear throughout Rotary Park, located at Harrison Avenue and Riverside Drive.

Perna said that sponsors have combined to produce what may be the largest Independence Day fireworks show in the state.

The festivities begin at 8 p.m. with a concert courtesy of the Downriver Community Band, a local group known for their annual Fourth of July and Somewhere in Time performances.

At the park, the Trenton Lions Club and St. Joseph Youth Group will sell food and beverages. Perna said that families are encouraged to bring a blanket and picnic dinner.
