MILLINGTON - Garden State Fireworks says it is proud to be producing the Fourth of July fireworks in Washington, D.C. this year.

The family-owned business has been putting on shows for more than 120 years. The company was opened by Augustine Santore in 1890 and is currently run by his grandsons.

The owners say they produce 60-70 percent of the fireworks displays across the state.

Most of the work for the company’s shows, including the big one at the nation's capital this year, is done at its facility in Millington.

The company has 20 year-round employees, who are mostly family members. Around the Fourth of July, they employ more than 400 people.
