CLEVELAND, Ohio — Wondering why you saw or heard fireworks on a non-holidays Wednesday and Friday in Cleveland?
It’s because the American Pyrotechnics Association convention is in town. And, we even caught video of Friday night’s display.
The APA’s 70th Convention & Annual Meeting is in Cleveland through Saturday.
Wednesday night, the organization hosted a fireworks show at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Several people took to Twitter to ask why they were happening.
Why do I hear fireworks in downtown Cleveland at 10:45 on a Wednesday?

Living in Cleveland with lots of random loud rumbling noises your options for what those noises could be are either:
A. Indians game fireworks
B. A dumpster being rolled outside
C. Gun fire

Hudson-based American Fireworks tweeted that they are one of the host sponsors and will be shooting off a closing fireworks display Friday night from FirstEnergy Stadium.
