The show will begin at approximately 9 p.m., Smith said, and will last between 15 and 20 minutes.

Prime viewing for the show is at Troy University’s Veterans Memorial Stadium, which will be open for free to those wanting to watch the show. Other locations Smith suggest were the Troy University campus and along Elm Street.

Smith said the fireworks can be viewed from other locations around Pike County as well and that many people have traditional areas they prefer to view the show from.
