Location & planning considerations
It’s never too early to start planning for your event. Permits, unique locations, and larger displays may take a bit longer to plan. If you’ve got a show in mind, please call Matthew Gilfillan at 916-832-5610 today.

Matthew began working in the family business in his early teens, learning the trade under the tutelage of his family’s generations of fireworks knowledge. Shortly after graduating with a business degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2004, he began working full-time for Pyro Spectaculars at the McClellan facility, mastering the operational aspects of his family’s fireworks enterprise.
In 2007, Matthew was promoted to a production role, where his passion for music and attention to detail quickly garnered him a reputation of as one of the industry’s premiere pyrotechnic choreographers. His creative designs produce some of the most exciting and intricate Sky Concerts in the world today.
Matthew’s success is fueled by his belief that understanding a client’s vision for the performing arts is the first step to a successful display.
