Welcome From the WPA Board
Welcome to Winter Blast
Greetings and welcome to a “Desert Pyro Party”, the 34th annual Western Winter Blast convention! The WPA is an amazing place where members can pursue their fascination and passion with pyrotechnics. You’ll have the opportunity to attend workshops and seminars, join your friends in manufacturing and build pyrotechnics, purchase, and shoot high quality Class C and Class B fireworks, and experience the incredible shows and demonstrations presented by top tier display companies. The Grand Public Display is sure to impress even the most seasoned of pyros!
We are deeply grateful to our planners and volunteer staff – this event is only possible because of their hard work. Please thank everyone you come across wearing a STAFF shirt.
Our club is a volunteer organization, and everyone attending Winter Blast is requested to volunteer at least one hour during the event. There are many ways to help from safety to security to cleanup. You can sign up online or during Registration. Without the help of our volunteers, this event simply wouldn’t exist.
Don’t pyrocrastinate. Volunteer today!
Winter Blast is coming up and we can’t wait!
Check out all the fun things this event offers.
