The Gruccis were responsible for the Statue of Liberty Centennial Fireworks in New York Harbor on July 4, 1986.

Mayor Tom: Boom Goes the Dynamite

Speaking of things that go bang, we just received word that tomorrow morning, in front of Hall of State at Fair Park, Mayor Tom's going to make some announcement concerning the city's Fourth of July shebang. Only, you get a pretty good idea of what the announcement's going to be from the, um, media release:

Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert and the internationally renowned Gruccis of New York (the fireworks family that has produced shows for the Olympic Games, numerous presidential inaugurations, the Statue of Liberty Centennial and numerous world fairs) will unveil plans for a special 4th of July celebration tomorrow (Thurs., May 22) on the steps of the Hall of State at Fair Park. The Fair Park fireworks program is expected to be the biggest in North Texas and rank among the nation's top 20 pyrotechnic displays.

Wait, don't tell me. Let me guess. Still, the Gruccis look kinda busy on July 4. --Robert Wilonsky
