CELINA - Fireworks represent a celebration for some people, but for Barry Peel Jr. they are an art form.
Peel's grandfather introduced him to fireworks at a young age, and he hasn't lost interest since, Peel said.

Over the past 12 years, he has been involved in assembling and leading shows alongside his brother Brett and son Barry III. [More]
