**New this year!
The fireworks are synchronized to a musical soundtrack that can be heard on KORN Country 100.3!
Please bring your largest and loudest portable radio so you can watch the awesome fireworks and hear the specially choreographed soundtrack.
Some things to look and listen for: if you hear a color in the lyrics to a song, expect to see that color in the sky! If a song expresses happiness, you may see a smiley face. Bright white fireworks twinkle in the sky when stars are mentioned in a song. Throughout the show you will also notice fireworks opening up to the beat of the music. This will be the biggest and baddest fireworks display you will witness in central Indiana this year!
So lock your radio on KORN Country 100.3 and enjoy the KORN Country Musical Fireworks as they wrap-up the Greenwood Freedom Festival!
