    They are so beautiful.  My family runs a fireworks stand.  It is my favorite time of the year.  It is the only time we feel like a family.

    Fireworks (class C)

    When I was a boy of about 8 or 9 in the late 70's, I recall getting to go to my first fireworks stand just before the 4th of July holiday. My parents and I were visiting friends and they had a Sunday newspaper lying around and in it was the TV Guide which had ads for a giant...

    Performance Art

    I've always loved fireworks and have watched displays in several states. There's something magical about the deep thunderous booms, the sharp crisp cracks, and the multitude of varied explosions of colors & sparkles. It makes all of my troubles disappear for a little while...

    Up until a few years ago I was deadly afraid of

    fireworks. I would lock myself in the car while my family went to light them in a ditch and cover my ears, but I still loved to see the bright colors, it was just to noise I hated. But I love them more than anything now! Especially the noises. I got over the noise when my older...

    Happy 4th Of July!!!

    I love fireworks. I grew up living across from a local Park and for many years when I was very young; they "set off" the fireworks from the center of the park and we could watch them from our front yard.  One year, they aimed the fireworks so much closer to us that we had to...

    I Made My Own Fireworks For Over 20 Years

    Cherry bombs, M-80s, rockets, Roman Candles, shells, fountains, mines, just about everything. I mastered every discipline of pyrotechnics I attempted. Thankfully I'm a machinist with my own shop and this helped a tremendous amount, I was able to make all my own tooling. From 1988...

    Adding To The Art In The Sky

    The sky is amazing, I should grab the binoculars more often. When it's time for sunsets, who doesn't enjoy them? So adding to the artistry in the sky is an honor, I think. I enjoy the sounds as well as the colorful bursts of symmetrical patterns. Fireworks =sky art. What's...

    A Unique Gift.....

    When I was growing up, one of the perks of having a father in the military, was that you always got to see fantastic fireworks on base.  They'd set up bleachers, open a concession stand, and dazzle you with a  spectacular pyrotechnics display.  Every seat was a...

    I have always been fascinated with them;

    as I child I thought they were actual magic and fountains and other ground fireworks were magic escaping from the earth. As I grew pled I continue to adore them and some many good memories are tied to firework displays or parties were we shot our own.

    I Have Seen Them Go Wrong Before.

    Fire is by nature a chaotic system, fireworks are a way of harnessing this chaos and making art out of it. I have watched it go right, and it is a thing of beauty when it does: The company that did this display is a rather small group out of Kansas, but their work is fantastic...

    4th of July... The warm summer sun is still quite bright at dusk. The air is sweet; a lemonade breeze that is sticky and clings to your skin. Your head dizzy with the noise of chatter and laughter. There you are in a pair of shorts, sitting on an old wooden bench of a picnic...

    What Are You Looking At?!

    Fireworks are what I would call a boring kind of fun because while your not really doing anything, the act of seeing them gives back a lot of entertainment. I mean, you can look at me while I'm gazing off at fireworks and I'll probably have the most mundane expression on my face...
