Biggest Firework in the USA

Steamboat Springs, CO. USA. was the location for a 2016 launch of the biggest firework shell to be sent skyward in the entire Western Hemisphere.  The 36″ diameter shell was loaded into a giant steel pipe, or mortar that was buried in the mountain side and 58lbs, that’s right 58 pounds of black powder was used to propel the shell skyward!  For comparison, the biggest consumer firework we sell here at USFireworks is 1-3/4″…but we think they are just as impressive!  Well, almost.  If your a lot closer.

Here is another view form over 3 miles away!

Fireworks of the Future?

The folks at Intel have pulled off something pretty amazing, but we don’t think it will replace fireworks any time soon.  They launched 100 drones simultaneously computer programmed to pattern and light the sky in synch with Beethoven’s 5th for a dramatic scene never before attempted.

While there are some serious similarities in the set up to make this happen such as the choreography and software create to make it happen, we still think fireworks are much more entertaining for the masses.

The first video below is Intels effort with the Drone’s, the second video is a suppliers display USFireworks provided the fireworks for, which do you think is more entertaining?

Giant Homemade Fireworks Wheel

Have you ever wanted to watch a huge homemade spinning wheel shoot off a massive amount of rocket fireworks?

To celebrate reaching 2 million subscribers on YouTube, DIY inventor Colin Furze crafted this intricate set up on the back of his pickup truck. The video is a flurry of bright explosions, loud music and celebrating, and comes only eight months after his 1 million subscribers celebration video where he set off 300 fireworks straight into the air from the back of his truck. In his latest video, he lights 120 rockets starting from the inside of the wheel and moving to the outside, and isn’t afraid to get close!

It’s all the rage   DM234BDM234A

Expecting couples everywhere are finding creative ways to let family and friends know what’s in the oven.  I experienced this personally a couple months ago while dropping my wife off (late) for a baby

shower / gender reveal party.

As we drove down the street towards the house the sky suddenly lit up with fireworks!  Now, I had never before wished I was at a baby shower but this sure made it interesting!  My interest piqued, I walked up to find out who and why they were shooting fireworks at a baby shower?

Environmental Impact of Fireworks

Fireworks chemicals We received a heartfelt e-mail regarding the environmental impact of fireworks.  The e-mail is partly reproduced below, with details removed for privacy protection:

Could you encourage persons not to use contaminants including fireworks near and uphill from our XYZ Spring, ABC Stream and a portion of a Creek on our private properties in our wildlife refuge?

Contamination from lead and other substances can also contaminate wildlife and the families that eat game animals locally and in the Americas at large when you think of migratory game birds.

New Georgia Fireworks Law 2015US Fireworks can now ship all fireworks to Georgia!    House Bill 110 legalized the sale of consumer fireworks in Georgia so US Fireworks can now ship all products found on our website to GA.

Governor Nathan Deal signed the bill legalizing the sale of fireworks in Georgia.  The new Georgia Fireworks Law makes all fireworks legal.   The bill was sponsored by Representative Jay Roberts, R-Ocilla.   It looked like it was dead at the end of the legislative session. But Senator Tyler Harper, R-Ocilla, revived the bill and made several changes that satisfied opponents.   The bill was then singed into law.
