Happy Monday, mamas! We’re doing another one of the most popular giveaways during the weeks leading up to July 4th — free fireworks! This week’s winner will get a $150 shopping spree at Pinnacle Fireworks, which you’ll notice when you’re on Interstate I-49 passing the Don Tyson Parkway exit (which is exit 70).
Pinnacle Fireworks is the giant, 4,000-square foot tent you see from the road, next to the Walmart Neighborhood Market. (It’s NOT the small fireworks tent located within the Walmart parking lot. It’s the one on the lot next to and slightly behind the Neighborhood Market.) Pinnacle Fireworks is owned by local father-and-son team, Todd and Adam Keeley.Regardless of whether or not you win this week’s shopping spree for $150 worth of fireworks, Pinnacle Fireworks is offering ALL of our Motherlode readers a 10 percent discount on regularly-priced fireworks. Be sure to ask for the “Motherlode Mama Discount” when you check out. Shopping at Pinnacle Fireworks will begin on June 28, 2019.
You’ll probably see fireworks guru Adam Keeley there when you shop. He knows SO MUCH about these products, so be sure to ask for pointers if you want to try something new this year. Adam and his wife Gabrielle are parents to daughter, Reagan, and they’ve also served as foster parents for kids ranging in age from 3 to 17 years old.
Fireworks have been a BIG deal in the Keeley family for a long time. Adam and his dad, Todd, do several things throughout the year to stay on the leading edge of the fireworks industry, which helps them choose the best fireworks to keep in stock in their tent. Here are just a few examples:
- They are members of the National Fireworks Association and attend the annual conference, trade show, and demos.
- They’re members of the Pyrotechnics Guild International and attend the annual conferences and demos.
- They’ve completed the Pyrotechnic Shooter’s course and Adam holds his Pyrotechnic Shooter license from the State of Arkansas.
- The Keeleys attended 8 separate demos this Spring, watching and taking notes on more than 500 different fireworks. They saw another 300+ fireworks demonstrated last Fall at the National Fireworks Association conference in Wichita, KS, and Adam has watched more than 1,000 videos of fireworks from vendors around the country.
- Adam is a member of the professional crew that does pyrotechnics for the Razorback football games.
And here’s one more family photo of the Keeley crew working at the tent last summer:
As moms, we know how frustrating it can be to go to a fireworks tent and not really know which fireworks to choose. The packaging doesn’t always explain what that firework will do once the fuse is lit. Which big fireworks are worth the price tag? Which ones are the most budget-friendly but are still fun for kids?
Since Adam LOVES all things fireworks, we asked him to put together a Top 10 list of his best fireworks recommendations for 2019. Just click HERE to see the Fireworks Shopping Guide for Parents, which will help you get the most “bang for your buck.”
If you have kids who LOVE a bouncy house or Kona Ice, you may want to plan on visiting Pinnacle Fireworks on Saturday, June 29, 2019 because there will be two bouncy houses on site as well as a Kona Ice truck (with free Kona Ice for Pinnacle Fireworks customers)! The bouncy houses will also be there on July 4th.

We try to invite a different family (usually someone from another country) over each year to celebrate with us to teach our children the gift of hospitality.
Favorite 4th of July memories are when my kids were young and my aunt hosted for the entire family (40-50) and had a pool party all day and then fireworks at night and everyone brought tons of fireworks so it was a huge show!

My first year here in Fayetteville was onevof my favorite. My husband and the kids and I got to spend got to spend it with their new uncle (his brother he had never met till then), and he was also reunited with his sister he hadn’t seen in like 15yrs.

My favorite 4th of July memory is all of my childhood ones! We grew up in the country and could shoot as many fireworks for as long as we wanted without bothering anyone. When I was very young, I would go to bed and get woke up when it was time to come outside and shoot them! Awesome memories!
