Pyrotecnico’s inaugural pyrotechnics and fireworks festival, PryoFest, will light up the skies on Saturday, May 26, at Hartwood Acres in Hampton Township.
Headquartered in New Castle, Pyrotecnico is a family-owned fireworks and special effects company that has been designing award-winning shows for more than 120 years.
In partnership with the Allegheny County Parks Department, CBS Radio and Lamar Advertising, PyroFest promises to be a fun-filled, daylong community event for all ages.
“Fireworks are the international symbol of celebration and what better way to
commemorate the Memorial Day weekend than a day of unique and innovative
pyrotechnics and fireworks entertainment,” said Stephen Vitale, president and CEO of Pyrotecnico.
America’s largest fireworks festival, PyroFest, will feature a number of pyrotechnic displays including: a U.S. Military Salute and National Anthem display, daytime and colored smoke fireworks, a 300-foot pryo sun, a pyro UFO launch, and “Rock Loves,” based off the award-winning fireworks show of the same name.
Techniques and products from around the world will influence the design of these never-before-seen pyrotechnic displays. According to show producers, the audience will witness memorable and spectacular presentations of both daytime and nighttime fireworks, creating a sensory and visual experience that is certain to thrill young and old.
