Midlands Pyrotechnic Association

We are a geographically diverse multi-state club with members from South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska, roughly centered in eastern Nebraska. Our membership consists of individuals and businesses who share a common love of all things pyrotechnic.  Whether you enjoy shooting 1.3 or 1.4 pyro, manufacturing your own devices, choreographing displays, or simply watching the night sky light up with spectacular displays of color and noise, the MPA is a club built just for you.

We operate in accordance with all federal, state, and local regulations, are fully insured, and the club is a Nebraska Licensed Distributor.  We host weekend shoots throughout the year at several locations in Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa.  During these events, MPA members are free to build and shoot pyro as they please in a safe and legal setting.  2016 shoot dates have been being arranged and are listed below, additional dates may be added. Feel free to contact us if you require additional information.
