Downtown Vinton from 10am-4pm. Fairgrounds open at 4pm. Live music begins at 6pm. Then at 7:30pm presentation of colors and National Anthem. Then showcasing of hand built firework shells. Intermission and then 9:30pm Grand Display. Boomtown isn’t your your typical small-town- USA fireworks display. Its an Earth-shaking pyrotechnic experience you will not soon forget. If blinding ground effects and feel-the-heat-on- your-face fireballs aren’t enough, wait until the aerial bombs greet you with a heart-pounding aftershock. And don’t be late. The best seats in the house are in the grandstands at the fairgrounds, but parking and seating fills up quickly and there is a charge for both. Come to town early for Boom-fest in downtown Vinton and then head to the fairgrounds for the main event. The fireworks are free to watch, and can be seen for miles around. However, if you are not at the fairgrounds, you’re missing half the show! Ground effects, heart- pounding music and feel-the-heat-on- your-face fireballs set the scene for the greatest pyrotechnic show you’ll ever see.
