I just got out of the coolest meeting and I have to tell someone.

I realize we're still a ways out, but I need you to mark September 7th, 2013 on your calendar.

Yes, I know, that's the President's Bowl - but it's also the night Sioux Falls will experience the most unbelievable fireworks show EVER in the history of the city.

All that week, our little corner of the world will be hosting an International Fireworks Convention - yes, little Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

There will be fireworks professionals here from all over the world - including venders unveiling the latest and greatest displays.

Here's the cool part - the final night of the convention, which is that Saturday September 7th, they're hosting a public show at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds as a way of saying thank you to Sioux Falls (I know this because I've been asked to emcee the event).

By the way - these are the same folks who were responsible for the fireworks display during the Beijing Olympics!  Remember how unbelievable they were?

From what I understand, you should be able to see the biggest displays from anywhere in the city.

Again, mark your calendar - September 7, 2013 at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds.

I'll keep you posted - but I can't wait!!!
