FORT WAYNE, Ind (WANE) – This year’s downtown Fort Wayne fireworks display was a success as attendance broke the all time record at Parkview Field.
In a tweet, the Fort Wayne TinCaps posted that the 4th of July attendance was 9,508 people. That beats the old total set on Independence Day two years ago by about 250 fans.
Hundreds of fireworks were launched off of the Indiana Michigan Power Center after the Fort Wayne TinCaps game. Parkview Health and the TinCaps partnered with the City of Fort Wayne for this year’s display.
Workers from Melrose Pyrotechnics spent hours before the show setting up and loading the racks of fireworks. With the launch from the roof of the I&M building, the fireworks could be seen for miles around downtown.
