"The Trump administration has enlisted the help of two private fireworks firms to put on an extended pyrotechnics display as part of the president’s overhaul of the nation’s Independence Day celebration on the Mall.
The approximately 35-minute show will more than double the length of the traditional fireworks event, according to administration officials, and will include an elaborate display illuminating a mile-long stretch of sky above the Lincoln Memorial. Phantom Fireworks and Grucci Fireworks will donate equipment and personnel worth $750,000, according to the two companies.
The pyrotechnics show is part of the Fourth of July celebration President Trump has helped design and rebrand as a “Salute to America.” It will include a flight show featuring the Navy’s Blue Angels and a jetliner that flies as part of the Air Force One fleet. The donated show will start at 9:07 p.m. and will be followed by one launched by Garden State Fireworks, which has a long-standing contract with the National Park Service."
