Tilson HR to host “Salute to America” fireworks show

GREENWOOD (JUNE 26, 2020) – Johnson County residents will be able to enjoy a fireworks display this year after all, thanks to one local business who will host this year’s show on behalf of the community on Sunday, July 5th at 10 p.m.

“Me and my family look forward to celebrating the 4th of July and America’s independence each year and fireworks are an important part of that celebration. When I learned that fireworks were cancelled across the state, I couldn’t imagine our local families missing out on such an annual tradition, It would almost be like Christmas without Santa Claus,” said Tilson President and CEO, Brent Tilson. “This year’s display is about recognizing we are all in this together and celebrating our ongoing independence.”

Tilson says the size of the fireworks and central location will allow as many people as possible to watch the show from a socially-safe distance. The display will originate from the Swartz family property on the southeast corner of 135 and Stones Crossing Road, near the Franciscan Health building.

“We are very thankful to the City for their support and a special thanks to the Swartz family for jumping at the chance to participate in this celebration.”   Said, Tilson.  “Furthermore, during this COVID-19 crisis we ask everyone who either watch safely from their homes or from other locations to respect social distancing, CDC recommended best practices, and practice personal safety.   We want this to be a safe celebration.”

Ramsey Pyrotechnics, who also puts on the Connor Prairie Museum and Indianapolis Indians displays, will put on the show.

Residents from Greenwood and surrounding areas are encouraged to view the show from their homes and maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet if they watch the show from a place with other spectators.
