One of the events that I attended while in Lake Havasu City, AZ was the annual convention of the Western Pyrotechnic Association. There were three evenings where great fire works were presented by some of the largest Pyrotechnic companies in America. It was one of those situation where you had to be there to appreciate fully the event. Here are just a few of over 200 photos that I took.

Normally aerial fire works shells are 4 to 8 inches in diameter. They made on shell that had a 24- inch diameter. It weighed 104 lbs and was shot almost one half mile into the sky. The following photo is that shell. Like I said, "You had to of been there!"

It took a while for the fall out to reach the ground (below). It looked like a curtain about 3/4 of a mile wide.
Be in Lake Havasu City on Presidents Day weekend next February to enjoy this experience. The show is free.

The Cream Team

As a member of the Golden Spike Chapter of Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), I was involved with distributing ice cream for the Ice Cream Social during the FMCA's Western Area Rally in Indio, CA in January. We handed out over 4,000 ice cream bars during the event. Tough duty, but someone has to do it.
