definitely the unexpected.

Imagine the night sky coming alive with breathtaking displays of dazzling color as far as the eye can see. Then add perfectly synchronized tunes to these blazing bursts of fire as the crowd around you oohs and aahs to the music’s beat.
And there you have it…Sky Wars.

The Missouri Pyrotechnics Association proudly presents Sky Wars, a spectacular explosion of light and sound featuring invitation-only pyrotechnicians who are among the nation’s top fireworks choreographers. Their mission: to leave our audience absolutely positively breathless.

Known as pyromusicals—or concerts in the sky—these combinations of pyrotechnics and music generate explosive creations that can be seen and heard for miles. “Big” can’t describe its sheer size (it is the area’s largest fireworks show.)  “Dazzling” doesn’t even begin to illustrate its glory (it is one of the only pyrotechnic competitions in the U.S.) Simply put, Sky Wars is the ultimate battle in the sky!

Join us at our upcoming annual fireworks championship. We guarantee you will take home memories that will last a lifetime.

Boom, boom, boom! Even brighter
than the moon, moon, moon!
