All Friday Night its the TGIF Party!  (Thank God It’s Fireworks)

6pm: Beer tent opens

FREE Parking – FREE Admission

7-11pm: Lazer Productions DJ

Note: There is no scheduled fireworks display on Friday evening,
although there may be a few small samples and demonstrations throughout the night.

The Official beginning of the end of Summer is Memorial Day Weekend. We hold our Annual 2-Day Event. We hold a Meeting at the Farm. We have an on-site camping area. Generally, we hold a 2-day class to build (something) which is then shot in our Finale Evening Show. Perhaps a Special Guest Speaker, or two. A Pot-Luck dinner is offered on both days, cooking out on the (Large) Gas-fired Grille. Also, we have on-Site Vendors for Open Shooting. Held at the Yedlik Farm (approximately 5 mi. NE of Vinton), you can network with your peers, as you commune with Nature.



Annually, the IPA puts on what some people have said is arguably the Best Fireworks Display in the Midwest. Boomtown 2017 will be August 25th & 26th.  In 2015, we literally "sold out the place", they closed the gates and turned many away. Imagine that, the Fairgrounds full, and we had already been averaging 12,000+ people in attendance from all over the country.

We Celebrate for 2 Days, with On-site Camping, On-site Vending of Fireworks, Open Shooting, a Membership Meeting, Food, Music, Fun, and more than 12,000 of our closest friends. This one will be extra special - our 10th Annual Boomtown Event! Rumor has it - we may have some "extras" thrown in. Come help us Celebrate!

This YouTube Video is just ONE Show out of the 2-Day long affair (from 2015). Along with the Main Show - we have an Hour Long Builder's Showcase, On-site Vending with Open Shooting suspended (during Shows), an IPA Juniors Show, a President's Challenge (Friday Night - (Members only), a Salute to the Flag (Flag Raising by area Vets), The Star Spangled Banner sung Live (with Fireworks), and more!

All of Vinton Celebrates with "Boomfest" (Downtown Merchants), we have Live Music, Food,  Beer (Not for those of us Shooting), Networking, and of course - Fun! Come Join us. In the meantime, the the 2015 Show (currently the latest video available), is below.

Join us next year in the Grandstands as a Public Guest, or on the Track as an IPA Member, as the IPA once more "Struts it's Stuff. We would Love to see you there!
