For the first time since 1994, the Pyrotechnics Guild International is returning to Western Pennsylvania to celebrate its 40th annual convention. For fireworks lovers young and old, this event will mark an explosive occasion that should not be missed by anyone.
The best of the best in the fireworks industry will gather at Cooper’s Lake Campground from Aug. 11-16 to host the largest fireworks displays in the United States.
This event is just one of many that have come or will come to Butler County as a result of our consistent growth, scenic landscapes, and friendly faces. We are becoming a destination for events of all sorts, from Jeeps and chainsaws to baseball and unicycles and everything in between.
The members of Pyrotechnics Guild International are looking forward to being a part of our exciting community for the week of their convention.
This convention will feature four of the most show-stopping, jaw-dropping fireworks displays ever. We hope that you will take the time to come down and see what the “boom” is about.
Though these fireworks will be seen for miles, nothing compares to watching the displays from the grounds at Cooper’s Lake Campground. Fireworks will decorate the entire scape, from ground to sky and with displays like these; every seat will be a front row seat.
The Pyrotechnics Guild International convention is an exciting opportunity for the county. Not only will residents have the opportunity to see some of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the world, but the county as a whole will benefit from the thousands of visitors who will call Butler County home during the convention.
We invite you to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience, the 2013 Boom & a Blast Fireworks Extravaganza.
