The Heartland Music Festival will go out with a bang.

As is tradition, a fireworks show will begin Saturday at dusk.

“It’s the finale,” said Rene Bell, Heartland Music Festival chairwoman.

Bell said the fireworks will begin immediately after the concert by The Monarchs.

The display, put on by Zambelli Fireworks, will be accompanied by music provided by WAKY. The music will be piped from the bandstand speakers and broadcast on the radio station.

“It’s usually about eight to 10 minutes,” said Troy Critchelow, First Federal Savings Bank marketing director. The bank sponsors the event.

The fireworks display is viewed by concert-goers and can be seen by area residents around the lake.

“It’s a significant world-class show,” Critchelow said.
