The Pyrotechnic Artists of Texas have scheduled the Spring Pyrofest event for Caddo Mills in April.

The skies above Hunt County will likely get a little noisy at the end of April.

The spring Pyrofest has been officially scheduled the weekend of April 28-30. Pyrotechnic Artists of Texas is hosting the event on the grounds of Nelson’s Fireworks, 2768 Interstate 30 in Caddo Mills.

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, with registration starting at 10 a.m., followed at 10:30 a.m. by an organizational meeting. The event continues each day, with multiple classes on fireworks building and instruction, along with open shooting sessions.

The 2023 spring Pyrofest is also scheduled to include a Black Powder contest.
