“It’s not even a question anymore whether Pyrotecnico will continue to produce the event after the first two years,” said Derek Weber, show producer.  “The response from the public has been so positive that we will continue to build the event as an annual tradition in Pittsburgh.”

PyroFest will once again feature a number of pyrotechnic displays including: a U.S. Military Salute daytime display, returning for the second year a display presented by the famous and internationally-acclaimed Spanish company, Ricardo Caballer Ricasa, the return of the “Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks Challenge” and the world premiere of Pyrotecnico’s “Whole Lotta Love.”

“With never before seen choreography, effects, and imagery - the Pyrotecnico pyro-musical ‘Whole Lotta Love’ will take the audience on a journey through different genres of pop music that pertain to love in some form,” Weber said.   “It will include classics such as the Beatles ‘Love Me Do’ and Etta James ‘At Last’ to current artists such as Muse and Beyonce… and a surprise one from Guns N’ Roses.”

Weber expects a sell-out crowd this year as tickets are going fast.  Tickets can be purchased through the PyroFest website at www.pyrofest.com or through ShowClix at www.showclix.com.

“We guarantee that PyroFest will once again be an incredible, one-of-a-kind experience with daylong entertainment and the best fireworks you will ever witness,” Weber added.
