Hosted by Pyrotechnic Artist of Texas, the three-day event on the grounds of Nelson’s Fireworks, 2768 Interstate 30 in Caddo Mills, is designed for anyone who appreciates fireworks and how they are created and displayed.
Hobbyists with professional fireworks display companies from across the state are being invited to participate. The official description of the Pyrofest indicates the event begins Friday, Sept. 13, with classes on building fireworks, open manufacturing and open shooting all day.
On Saturday, Sept. 14, there will be professional displays for the members of Pyrotechnic Artists of Texas and the public to watch, as well as another day for fireworks building and open shooting.
Sunday, Sept. 15, will be focused on cleaning up and preparing for the next event..
Nelson’s Fireworks at the intersection of Interstate 30 and FM 1903 sits on what was once the family farm. Brothers Rex and Roy Nelson own and operate the company, which also includes locations in Rockwall and across North Texas.
