SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - The city of Southaven expects to get more bang for its bucks with a new vendor for its annual July Fourth fireworks show.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1f0pOos ) that the board of aldermen approved Tuesday a contract with PyroFire Displays to provide the fireworks for its Independence Day celebration at Snowden Grove Park.

The company will be paid $28,950 for what it calls an electronically and computer choreographed “high intensity” show - an $11,050 savings over last year’s display by American Fireworks.

This year, the city advertised for bids and PyroFire provided the lowest bid of two companies to submit bids for the job. American Fireworks was the second bidder and its bid was $40,000, the same amount it charged the city last year for the fireworks show.
