PyroShows Inc. in LaFollette is known throughout the world for its spectacular fireworks shows. But since the patients at East Tennessee Children's Hospital can't go outside this Independence Day to experience one of these fireworks shows, PyroShows is bringing each child in the hospital that day something special to help celebrate the Fourth of July. And Party City in Knoxville is providing red, white and blue Mylar balloons and American flags for Children's Hospital patients to highlight the Independence Day holiday.
The special fiber-optic "starlite sparklers" being provided by PyroShows will allow each child to perform their own dazzling "show" of color and light and add excitement to this special holiday. The flashlight is made of 40 strands of genuine fiber optic material and will be an exciting and colorful way for children to stage their very own July 4th celebration from their hospital room.
"We know that it's important for kids to get to have fun and just be kids, no matter what their situation is," said Lansden Hill, President of PyroShows. "We thought that this would be one very small way that we could brighten up some special kids' day on the Fourth of July and let them create their very own ‘fireworks celebration.'"
This is the seventh consecutive year that PyroShows has provided the patients at Children's Hospital with a special Independence Day celebration. "If these special ‘fireworks' bring an extra smile to just one child's face, it will be worth our efforts," Hill said.
