If you want to make a statement at your next party, be sure to end the night with an absolutely stunning light show. Fireworks are a guaranteed way to put your get-together a cut above all the rest.
Since their creation in 7th century China, fireworks have been a visually arresting way to mark special occasions. Though their mechanisms and styles have evolved over time so that they barely resemble the gunpowder fireworks of the past, fireworks continue to be a mainstay for important events. Countries around the world create fantastic light shows to celebrate their nation’s birthdays, monarchs use them to put on royal fireworks displays, and sport teams set off fireworks when they win an important title. There’s a reason for this. Fireworks have become synonymous with celebrations, good fortune, and happiness.
Infuse joy and luck into your next event by planning a truly epic fireworks display. You may not be the Queen of England, but you can still have a great selection of fireworks. Huge advancements in fireworks technology means there many different kinds to choose from. To start, you have to figure out if you want either ground or aerial fireworks. The latter type is further subdivided into skyrockets (which have their own propulsion) and aerial shells (which do not). Aerial shells are shot into the air from a mortar or tube that have been secured to the ground, and are the kind of firework you’re most familiar with, as they’re used in most professional fireworks displays.
Different cocktails of metals and chemicals are used to give fireworks their distinct colors. The addition of copper, for instance, produces blue fireworks, while strontium makes red fireworks. Ground fireworks include snakes, which start off as pellets. When lit, the pellet produces an ash in the form of a snake slithering through the grass. Fountains are another common type of ground firework. They typically come in a tube that is placed on the ground and emits sparks and sound effects like whistles.
These are just a few of the options ahead of you, which go to show you how many fireworks there are. Feeling overwhelmed? When faced with this selection, it’s best if you visit a reputable fireworks retailer who has a friendly and knowledgeable staff available to field any of your questions. At Rocket Fireworks, their representatives are fireworks experts, and they are happy to explain how each of their products will detonate.
