About the Club
The WPA was founded in 1989 by a few pyrotechnic enthusiasts who decided a west coast based organization was long overdue. In the spirit of the PGI and other pyrotechnic organizations, we wanted a network of close friends we could share our love for fireworks with and to hold events that were both entertaining and educational. I don’t know if any of us could have dreamed we would be so successful. Our growth has soared since then and we just keep getting bigger every year. As a club, we fill the void felt so long by west coast pyros.
The purposes of the WPA are to:
- Promote and encourage the safe, legal and artful use of pyrotechnics
- Promote the legal productions and sale of high quality pyrotechnics
- Channel the creative energies of talented people into design, productions and display of high quality pyrotechnics through training, demonstration, sharing of knowledge and the example of the membership.
