Company: Melrose Pyrotechnics of Kingsbury, Ind.
July 4th shows: More than 800

Melrose Pyrotechnics promises 5,000 aerial effects in its 20-minute show, one of the largest in the nation. The program will include golden-winged butterflies, silver-and-red hourglasses, and fireworks shaped like the planet Saturn, with a gold center and bluish green rings.

Melrose Pyrotechnics' sales are up 10%, but growth has slowed in the last couple of years, according to Vice President Tom Thompson. After the Fourth, the company will turn its attention to baseball games: it has at least 10 lined up.
