It is the largest fireworks display in Indiana. The Donatos Downtown Freedom Blast is airing on Fox59 for the first time ever. And this year's show will go on despite dry conditions.
"We have got safety precautions in place that we have been doing for the last 30 to 40 years, since we have been doing these fireworks and I am pretty confident that we have got it well managed," said Indianapolis Fire Department Chief Fred Pervine.
"Firefighters will be looking, checking on all the other buildings," said Chief Pervine. "We are going to make sure all of those areas are safe."
In other parts of the state, citywide fireworks displays have already been postponed or even canceled. Indianapolis Fire Chief Fred Pervine said the conditions are cause for concern, but not all-out worry.
"I am not really alarmed, but we are under a moderate drought," said Chief Pervine. "I think it is manageable right now."
Pervine said the decision to go on with this year's show is all about keeping people entertained, and keeping them safe.
"We just want to make sure we do the right thing and we are safe in what we are doing," said Chief Pervine.
