Garry Poe, an event producer for Melrose Pyrotechnics, has been setting off fireworks in Evansville for 16 years. He calls Evansville a ‘great venue’ for fireworks because of the bend in the river.

Poe said Melrose Pyrotechnics was selected to represent the United States in an international competition that will take place in Canada in a few weeks.

Poe calls the show in Evansville a ‘practice preview.’ It starts at 9 p.m. and will last about a half hour.
