    Default Pennsylvania Display Fireworks Dealers

    Where around Pittsburgh Pa can you get display fireworks. The only one i know of is Kellners. Does any one know of any where else. Im looking for a larger selection of shells.

    We also are a major international importer of the finest Class "B" professional fireworks


    Edit, Maybe that was a little further then I first thought. Looks like a 4 hour drive.

    Try July 4 Ever. They have a huge selection with great prices. They are in Walden, NY. Just a couple of hours away.

    First of all to fine tune this thing a little more than what these guys say.
    International don't sell Class b anymore - they haven't since about 2002.
    Fire Art is about 1.5 hours east of Kellners, just about 15 minutes out of Clearfield.
    July4 Ever is probably like at "least" a 6-7 hr. drive for you.
    Then Fireworks Productions - go turnpike til you hit I-83South - at least 4 hours.
    Celebration Fireworks - near Emaus, Pa. - other end of Pa.

    Joyce,

    Premier Pyrotechnics has storage magazines near Belfast, NY and Hurricane, WV. Either one would be about 4.5 hours from Pittsburgh. Delivery is also available.

    The catalog is available online www.premierpyro.com.

    You might also be interested in attending shooter school in Ashville, Ohio on 4/12/08. Lots of good info there on, among other things, insurance.

    Although completely unofficial, but I heard, from a fairly reliable source, that the NY DOL had allowed them to continue with any business (shows & sales) that were contracted for at the time of the suspension of their license. Which could account for them still doing shows. I hope that they get everything inline soon...

    I contacted July4Forever recently and they were very unhelpful and just kept asking that I call back another time, so I gave up. May have been due to recent problems. John at Celebration was VERY helpful and nice to talk to.

    Yes, celebration fireworks, has some great stuff but keep in mind that they are a display company that does some sales. Also like most places selling B items they are very low this time of the year. I believe are having a container of cakes coming in very soon. Also our shipment of fiberglass tubes should be here by mid Otc. Or early Nov. . Our fiberglass tubes are among the most reasonable on the East cost.

    I just got word from pyrotechnico no longer sells their products for various reasons is all i was told. Fireart says they will and will also offer contingency and is sending me a letter to verify this to the ATF. have not heard back from the others. Just thought I would add to this post I know its old but better to reinform on this post than start a new one.....so if anyone knows of anything other companies as of now please list I am looking for a new supplier a bit closer to home. pyrotechnico would of been great only being 45 min from my house :-(

    Shoot me an email at tim@starfirecorporation.com. Our plant is in Carrolltown and would be happy to work with you. And for the record, yes, John Kemps is a super guy, I've dealt with him many times over the past few years. You'll be hard pressed to find a better gentleman in the business. Peter over at FireArt is top notch as well, lots of choices for you

    Starfire in Carroltown and Keystone in Dunbar are the two closest to PGH. Good luck with Keystone. You can also try Old Glory in Smock or LBS just beyond Uniontown. That's 4 within about an hours drive. Starfire and Fire Art will both be at the Bolivar if you would like to come and meet these guys.

    I will agree, this year I delt with pyroimports for the first time and they were great! Zach is a great guy who came from a hobbist background and turned his love into a business. He had some great product too! I spoke with him about bringing in my 2/1 and 4/1 cakes for next seasson.
