About the Event

THUNDER IN THE POCONOS is a ground breaking, earth shattering event fueled by all things pyro. For the first time ever virtually anyone, from Pros to Joes, can light the fuse on professional fireworks.  All ticket holders (age 18+) will have the opportunity to purchase and fire professional fireworks including:

  • Shells up to 8" 

  • A large variety of mesmerizing display cakes

  • 4", 6" and 12" fireballs along with fireball packages - see packages tab at the top menu for more details

  • Ground pounding salutes

All standard price list items are currently available for pre-order at a 10% discount (excluding packages) by clicking HERE!

All devices will be fired under the license of Celebration Fireworks. There is no transfer of ownership, since all ATF regulated devices will be setup and fired the day of the event. All guests attending the event will be required to sign a liability waiver.
