Three shopping sprees at Pinnacle Fireworks in Northwest Arkansas
Happy Monday, mamas! We’re doing the most popular giveaway during the weeks leading up to July 4th — free fireworks! At the end of this week, we’ll choose THREE winners (at random). Two of the winners will get a $50 shopping spree, and one winner will get a $100 shopping spree at Pinnacle Fireworks, which you’ll notice when you’re on Interstate I-49 passing the Don Tyson Parkway exit (off 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 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 one of this week’s shopping sprees, Pinnacle Fireworks is offering ALL Motherlode readers a 10 percent discount on regularly-priced fireworks. (Be sure to ask for the “Motherlode Mama Discount” when you check out. To order online, click HERE to go to the Pinnacle Fireworks website and the use the code PYROMAMA at checkout.) Shopping at Pinnacle Fireworks will begin in-person on June 28, 2021, but online ordering is available now.
You’ll probably see fireworks guru Adam Keeley at the tent 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 2021. Just click HERE to see the Fireworks Shopping Guide for Parents, which will help you get the most “bang for your buck.”
If your family loves ice cream, you may want to plan on visiting Pinnacle Fireworks on the evening of Friday, July 2, 2021 or the afternoon of Saturday, July 3, 2021 because Jack’s Ice Cream Truck will also be on site. Cool off with ice cream before or after you shop.
Quick reminder: Be sure to remember that all Motherlode readers will get an additional 10% discount that stacks with the 50% off retail discount. (For online orders, enter coupon code PYROMAMA at checkout. Online ordering is available now to reserve items, and then you can pick up orders on or after June 28, 2021. For on-site purchases, just ask for the Motherlode discount at checkout. Be sure to place online orders by July 3rd, since inventory will be sold too quickly on July 4th to ensure curbside pickups.)
