GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A convention with a bang is headed to Gillette next summer.

The Pyrotechnics Guild has chosen Gillette for its 2015 international convention. Local officials expect the convention Aug. 8-15 to bring thousands of people to town.

There will be four nights of fireworks displays and a community concert.

The Gillette News-Record reports (https://bit.ly/1zYL3Qe) hotel rooms and campsites already are selling out that week.

The guild previously held its convention in Gillette in 2008, 2003 and 1998.
