This Memorial Day weekend my family and I took a trip to Hartwood Acres in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania to attend the 3rd annual PyroFest event there produced by Pyrotecnico. Since this was our second time attending a PyroFest event, we already knew it would be fantastic.
Their events always boast live bands starting at 3:00 pm on the main stage, with great music continuing all day long up until dark when the fireworks displays begin. In between the bands, something else very unusual happens at the PyroFest that rarely occurs in the United States (although it is very common in Europe)-daytime fireworks displays are shot. That, in itself is a pleasant surprise and makes attending the event all the more worthwhile.
