2024 Fireworks will be held on

2023 Wrap-up

Thank you for all of the kind messages of support for Tippy fireworks.  We appreciate your encouragement.  As of this writing we have not finalized an agreement with Pyrotecnico to settle the incident they had with this summer’s Fourth of July fireworks display.  But I believe we have a verbal commitment from them that is very generous and we hope to get this in writing soon.  They have been cooperative and together we are planning to make some upgrades to our equipment that should prevent this problem going forward.

First, we hope to equip the pontoon boat that the crew from Pyrotecnico uses to monitor the electronically choreographed display with a water pump and fire hose similar to the one used by the North Webster Fire Department.  We would like to again thank NWFD for their quick response.  They have a logistics problem in that Tippy and Webster Lakes have their displays at the same time.  Because NWFD has only one boat, they cannot put it in the water without making a guess about which lake to put it in.  As the crews that our vendors hire to shoot the shows are always trained fire fighters, giving them a pump and hose should make for the quickest possible response time if we ever had another fire.

We are also working with Pyrotecnico to design some sort of fire resistant barrier between the “cakes” that started this year’s fire and the wooden racks that hold the steel tubes that launch the other firework.  Cakes are what the industry calls the paper boxes filled with pyrotechnics that spray the low level sky with color.

And finally, we hope to replace the damaged eight foot wide barge with one that is twelve feet wide allowing our vendor more space on which to arrange our ever growing fireworks display.

While our families and friends do the work to maintain our equipment and to make this event a success, we clearly understand that none of these improvements or our annual display would be possible without the generous financial support of the LTPO membership.  We cannot thank you enough!
