Issue #3

Photography by Angelo Caruana This was another impressive year for the Mount Carmel Pyrotechnic team of Żurrieq. A year you could say culminated on Saturday, July 26th, when Malta’s nighttime skies above Żurrieq filled with intensely bright colors and a creative intermix of innovative pyrotechnic effects. Actually, July 26th was a genuine night of firsts for the company. This because for...

Photos by Mary Zastrow I’ve been attending “Pyromania” (formerly known as the “Pyro U St. Louis Shoot”) every year since 2009. This gathering—which continues to grow bigger every year—is now one of the largest pyrotechnic events in the United States. MoPyro (Missouri Pyrotechnics Association: www.mopyro.us) hosts this annual event, but the underlying foundation originated within the Pyro Universe community (www.pyrouniverse.com)....

We stayed at a beach resort on the Gulf of Mexico, and the owner was an older man, perhaps 70 or more, who was very friendly. In his shop he had an entire drawer filled with...

Iceland, known predominantly for its cold weather (which is not at all accurate), geysers (which is very accurate), the international artist Bjork, and of course, the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption of 2010 (mainly because it briefly disrupted European air travel). But did you know that the Icelandic people harbor an unrivaled love of fireworks that can cause them to literally...

Today, Valencia is known for three things: the Paella (a delicious Valencian rice dish), for oranges and for the beauty of its mascletas. That may be an oversimplification of this beautiful city, but these three things certainly add to the fame and charm of Valencia. This article is a brief explanation of the mascletà and it’s symphonic characteristics and...

  The Dutch really love fireworks—insanely love fireworks. Maybe that’s an understatement, but it is definitely factual nonetheless, and rarely stated as a simple sentence out loud. It is to the extent they love fireworks that makes them come across as “pyroholics,” however. Yearly, we spend somewhere in the ballpark of 67 million Euro's on legal fireworks. It's hard to...
