National fireworks convention underway in Sioux Falls

Posted: Updated:

 The National Fireworks Association is hosting its annual convention and trade show in Sioux Falls this week.

 The convention draws nearly 1,000 fireworks buyers, sellers, and manufacturers from 37 states and 5 different countries. John Mo with Brothers Pyrotechnics tells us, "Here we are not only able to show our products in the trade show, but we are also able to demonstrate our live products at night so people can see new what we have for the next year."

 You may have noticed those fireworks last night at the W-H Lyon Fairgrounds.

 Each night this week they are showing off and rating the new fireworks before making purchases for next year.
 
 The convention ends with a huge public fireworks show Saturday night.

 There will also be safety demonstrations for creating your own back yard fireworks display.
