The City of Boise's 10th Annual Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration at Ann Morrison Park in 2017.

Western Display Fireworks will produce no fewer than 200 fireworks extravaganzas throughout the Northwest on the Fourth of July — that will include the City of Boise's big display in Ann Morrison Park.

Heather Gobet, the owner of Western Display, talks about her family's unique relationship with a family of fireworks makers in China, the looming threat of tariffs on the fireworks industry and the very serious business of transporting and securing pyrotechnics.
