Downtown Indy, Inc. said Monday night’s show will last about 20 minutes. Fireworks will be launched from the 500 North Meridian Building.

It’s the second year in a row that the downtown fireworks show will originate from that location. For decades, the Regions Tower served as the site, but a residential development next to the tower prompted a change last year.

The show is scheduled to start at 10 p.m.

Organizers said the American Legion Mall and Indiana War Memorial Grounds are ideal spots for the best up-close views. If you’d like to get a little farther away, organizers suggest the north and west sides of Downtown/Mile Square.

Veterans Memorial Plaza is off-limits to spectators and parking.

The fireworks show will synced to music aired on local Emmis Communications radio stations, including B105.7, 97.1 Hank FM and 93.1 FM WIBC.
