INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Crowds will head to downtown Indianapolis for the Fourth of July fireworks.

Firework crews set up materials and rockets for the city’s show Sunday and Monday morning. According to Downtown Indy Inc., approximately 3,500 fireworks synced to music will be on display Monday night. The launch site is on top of a seven-story building next to the Regions Tower at 500 N.

“This is our second year we are launching the fireworks from the building. We will see color and vibrancy in our downtown as we have never seen before,” said Max Wing with Downtown Indy Inc.

Attendees can watch the show from the Indiana War Memorial Grounds at Pennsylvania and Vermont streets or view them from the American Legion Mall. The show is expected to last 20 minutes and will start at 10 p.m. Food trucks and vendors will also be available.
