It started out as a way to say, “Happy Birthday, Mom”.

David Lewis, pyrotechnician and proprietor of Berkshire Fireworks, started setting up backyard displays as a teenager because his mother’s birthday was on the Fourth of July. What started out as a simple, backyard interest quickly grew into a full time, year round passion that continued to expand steadily.

Now, with full-time staff and new shows added continuously to his business, Lewis is becoming well-recognized and sought after for his ability to create unusual, memorable, unique displays for any special event. His artistic design and creative use of special effects shells has earned him the well-deserved reputation of providing the best pyrotechnic displays in the New England area.

While he still plans and participates in the annual family party and fireworks display, it is usually at a date later in the summer that is less hectic than the Fourth of July.
