CelebrateFate - Fate, Texas - Display Event

Pyrotechnic Artists of Texas (PAT)

This will be the fourth year Flambeaux & Friends have thanked the Nelson’s by setting up the 1.4G Display for this Event. Our way to thank them for their generosity and hosting of our club events. This is a Charity Display, no one, including Flambeaux LLC, will get paid for working on this 1.4G Display. Rex Nelson picks out over 150 cakes from his inventory, (last year totaled 169 cakes: 10-200g, 159-500g) really! We script it and then we wire it all up with Cobra’s and shoot it. 3-Position Front, Comet/Mine runs if we have time. Flambeaux Fireworks will be the Lead in setting up the 1.4G Display. The 1.4G Display will began upon darkness, in tandem with a 1.3G Display performed by another company. (Note: Sign-offs will not be available at this event.) It’s a great family atmosphere event to invite friends and family to attend.

So if you’d like to help PAT in setting up the 1.4G Display, while learning about 1.4G techniques, come find us in the field, here are the details:

We have a slight change in plans for the 1.4G Setup for Fate. Let’s meet at Nelson’s Fireworks in Rockwall at 9:00am. We’re going to work in the air conditioning to talon and label the cakes, then load them in the truck and go to Smith Park to begin the setup outside.
