The tradition of shooting off fireworks on the 4th of July is as old as our nation's independence. And the business of fireworks is also a family tradition for the folks who own Western Display Fireworks, one of the largest producers of professional fireworks in the the Northwest.

Western Display will be responsible for putting on the City of Boise's big fireworks show on July 4th, which this year has been moved to Expo Idaho.

Weekend Edition host George Prentice talks with Heather Gobet, co-owner and manager of Western Display Firework from their headquarters in Canby, Oregon. You can listen to their interview below.
