Pyrotechnics Guild To Hold Annual Fireworks Show Through Aug. 17

The Pyrotechnics Guild International is holding its annual fireworks convention through Aug. 17 at the LaPorte County Fairgrounds.

During this week-long convention, visitors are encouraged to view some of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the world. Tuesday night’s display will feature a presentation display and then a competition program between three different companies. They will discharge some of the best fireworks visitors will ever see and many that haven’t been seen in any display yet. The displays won’t be of a “finale” in nature, but each firework will be discharged one at a time, at a lively pace, with a description.

These displays will also take place tomorrow and Friday night, all beginning at 9 p.m. The gates open at 6 p.m., and tickets are on sale at the LaPorte County Visitors Convention Bureau offices in the Marquette Mall. Anyone interested is encouraged to purchase tickets early. Call 1-800-634-2650 for more information.
