Boston 4 Productions welcomes Rozzi Fireworks of Loveland, Ohio as this year’s pyrotechnicians. Founded in 1895, Rozzi has led the way in the choreography of fireworks and music and is seen as one of the forerunners within the industry.

“Our life as a company and a family is centered around the Fourth of July”, said Art Rozzi, choreographer for this year's fireworks. “Our culture as five generations of fireworks craftsman will be our special ingredient blended with the touch of precision and color.”

No city does fireworks quite like Boston; this year’s will be the largest and most complex Boston Fourth of July pyrotechnic show yet. More than 20,000 pounds of explosives will be used for the display, which will include the largest shells to date: 10-inch diameter shells that will climb to 1,500 feet – roughly three times the height of the historic Custom House Tower. Rozzi – known for making many of their shells – will create close to 30 percent of all the shells used within the Boston show.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular “, said John Rozzi, president of Rozzi Fireworks. “Blending the best in music with spectacular fireworks, this show and concert has been an inspiration to us and the entire American fireworks industry for many years.”
