kellners fireworks demo nights past firework demo pics

Kellner's annual demo nights started in 1988 as a small gathering of pyro club members to showcase new products. Demo nights eventually grew into a large gathering of people from all areas of the pyrotechnics community. Our seminars have featured the top professionals and amateurs from the manufacturing, regulatory, and display aspects of the pyrotechnics industry. Our product demonstrations remain the highlight of the weekend with a 1.4 demo on Friday night and a 1.3 demo on Saturday night. Our demo nights provide everyone who is interested in pyrotechnics a place to come and enjoy the art of fireworks. We hope to see you here!
