Company: Pyro Spectaculars of Rialto, Calif.
July 4th shows: More than 400

Pyro Spectaculars has choreographed and shot the famed Macy's Fourth of July fireworks show 25 times, starting in 1981. This year's 25-minute display will have segments saluting Broadway shows and ragtime.

The pyrotechnics will be perform at a lower altitude, which plays better on high-definition television. Because of port closings in China earlier this year, Pyro Spectaculars President Jim Souza estimates his industry is facing a 20% product shortage.
