Firework convention comes to Sioux Falls

Posted: Updated:


The National Fireworks Association is holding its national convention in Sioux Falls this week. Nearly 1,000 firework buyers, sellers and manufacturers are at the Ramkota Exhibit Hall checking out all of the new products on the market this year. The convention brought in industry people from 37 different states and five different countries. The convention ends each night with new product demonstrations at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls. The show will feature fireworks from several different countries, including one of the last American manufacturers. The show will feature several new effects and will be timed out to different music. Before Saturday's public show, the National Fireworks Association will also feature several smaller consumer fireworks displays that focus on safety.Safety is one of the NFA's primary goals. Saturday's demonstration will teach consumers how to have a fun and safe backyard fireworks display. The fireworks display is open to the public. The cost is $5 per car or $2 per person for large passenger vehicles. You can also watch the slower product demonstrations each night at the fairgrounds, but be warned, it's not a traditional fireworks show. One product is shot at a time to give buyers a chance to review the new product.
