The Park Board of Trustees will present their annual 4th of July celebration featuring the international pyrotechnic professional team, A.M. Pyrotechnics.

Founded by Aaron Mayfield, who creates many of the company’s pyrotechnic and pyromusical fireworks displays, award winning A. M. Pyrotechnics has won over audiences internationally for their creative and unique special effects. Dr. John Steinberg of Pyrotechnics Guild International stated “ in an era where I see much the same material at most displays, their sources of phenomenally high-quality and masterfully crafted display shells from many countries and providers makes every single one of their displays a signature event.”
 
Trevor Davis, director of A.M. Pyrotechnics, Houston, said “I have been urging the company to open a division in Texas and now we’re looking forward to presenting a top notch fireworks display over Galveston Island as our entry into the area.”
