West Fargo, North Dakota.
Each summer, Pyrotechnics Guild International (PGI) hosts a week-long convention of their membership. Of interest to the general public, they offer nightly competitions for judging, vendor’s demonstrations and other displays. The conference is held in a different city each year and over the years, it’s been held in West Fargo at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds on eight separate occasions. The 2017 convention was held in West Fargo. If you enjoy quality fireworks programs, the PGI public displays are not to be missed. This year, there were three evening programs open to the public. Their public displays are popular events, this year with a sell-out crowd on the final presentation night. I try not to miss at least one of their presentations, especially the finale performance. There were four presentations on Friday evening including three performances set to music. The program started just after 9:30 PM and concluded just after 11:00 PM, during which, except for short breaks between presenters, the sky was filled with pyrotechnics. In a future Travel Tuesday, I’ll have more on the PGI and additional images captured during the performance. Next year, PGI holds their convention in Mason City, Iowa.
About the photo: This image was captured with my Samsung S7 Cellphone with minor editing (cropping and correcting for better detail in the dark areas). The rule for Cellpic Sunday is simple, the image must be captured on a mobile device.
