Peru picks Indiana company for fireworks display

Posted by wlpo on March 8, 2016

If you’ve seen fireworks at Navy Pier in Chicago and came away impressed than you’re sure to be a fan of Peru’s display.

The Peru Recreation Board is paying Melrose Pyrotechnics $20,000 to put on a fireworks display west of the Peru Mall on July 3rd. Melrose is out Indiana and was picked out of three bidders who only differed in price by seven dollars.

The company has done Peru’s fireworks in the past and is known for their display at Navy Pier. They’ve been around since for over 50 years.

The $20,000 for the display is the maximum the city budgets for fireworks. Since they didn’t have a display last year, money that would’ve been spent on fireworks is going to new playground equipment.
