About the event

The event is organized in partnership with the Iowa Pyrotechnic Association (IPA) and a committee.  If blinding ground effects and feel-the-heat-on-your-face fireballs aren't enough, wait until the aerial bombs greet you with a heart-pounding aftershock!

The annual meeting of the IPA had been held on private property, but due to growth in membership they decided it would be best to hold the event somewhere else. The IPA contacted Vinton Unlimited in 2007 about incorporating a community event in conjunction with their meeting. After much discussion and planning, Boomtown was born. The public planning for Boomtown is managed by an all-volunteer committee, with the pyrotechnic expertise of the IPA coordinating the fireworks displays. Visitors have been welcomed from all over the Midwest and as far away as Arizona and Massachusetts.

If you are interested in helping, volunteers can email the committee at
