Everybody loves fireworks. A beautiful display can easily turn an average event into a memory that will last a lifetime. When not handled with care, however, fireworks have the potential to be extremely dangerous. That’s why our number one priority has been and always will be safety. This is a cornerstone of our entire business model and customer approach. When you call our professional fireworks company, you can trust us to put safety first with every show.

When properly executed, fireworks can be magical. We love bringing a sense of fun and wonder to Dunkirk, NY and the surrounding cities. We take our work very seriously and plan hard to make sure that each and every job is handled with care and professionalism, while still delivering that all-important sense of fun and wonder.


Ever since I was a child, I have always been passionate about fireworks!  I started delivering newspapers at 10 years old – to save money to buy fireworks.  My love for fireworks continued to grow.  When I wasn’t igniting fireworks, I was researching fireworks.  When I turned 21 years old, I found a local club that shared my passion:  The Western New York Pyrotechnic Association.

One of the club members owned Skylighters, and shortly thereafter, I started working for him and training under him.  It really was a dream come true.  Over the next eight years, I worked alongside some of the most intelligent, hard-working, and like-minded individuals.

In the fall of 2011, there was a rumor that the owner wanted to retire.  The future of Skylighters was in question.  So I decided to buy it.  Being so passionate about fireworks, continuing my career in the industry and continuing the reputation of Skylighters was very important to me.

I made it my goal to be one of the most respected, honest, and creative, fireworks display companies in the country.  Today, Skylighters is made up of over 100 of the finest hard-working men and women in the industry.  The attention to detail and love for fireworks continue to show in every single display we produce.  We are proud to service all the great communities, fairs, boards, schools, and everyone else that we produce fireworks for.
