The Northwest Pyrotechnics Association put on a fireworks show from North Dam on Saturday night.

"I heard a lot of 'oohs' and 'ahs' and that's what we're always looking for," said Alan Cain, a local pyrotechnician who helped organize the event and set off the fireworks.

"We were seriously delayed because we were missing two keys," Cain explained of a late start to the show.

One of the missing keys opened a gate where the pyrotechnician was stationed, and the other to where the equipment was being stored.

Next up for Cain and the Northwest Pyrotechnicians Association is a show on Crescent Bar on the Columbia River near Quincy on Julyy 2nd and 3rd.

Cain said this is the end of their fireworks season for the Grand Coulee area for now, but he hopes that the North Dam event becomes a regular thing, with more events in the area in the future.
