Fireworks friendly States, GA and PA looking to make changes.

Fireworks friendly States, GA and PA

Legal Fireworks:  Fireworks friendly States, GA and PA

Fireworks friendly States, GA and PA both have bills pushing to change the fireworks friendliness of their laws. GA is looking to further restrict their recent legalization, by cutting back on “legal” times fireworks can be shot and by giving local governments more control on legality.  The current law allowing fireworks to be set off until 2 a.m. around the New Year’s Day and the Fourth of July holidays would be revised to set a midnight fireworks curfew July 3-4 and Jan. 1. Georgians would be allowed to set off fireworks on New Year’s Eve until 1 a.m. Jan. 1. And, the midnight fireworks cutoff time for the rest of the year would be moved up to 10 p.m. Any times outside those specifically mentioned in the bill would be handled by local authorities.

Firework Factory Explosion in China.

Firework Factory Explosion in China.

fireworks factory explosion

Another tragic firework factory explosion in China just before the Chinese New Year. Ten people were reported killed and seven injured in an explosion in another firework factory explosion in China just weeks ahead of the Chinese New Year, authorities said.

The Tongxu county government in Henan province said the cause of the blast was not immediately clear and was under investigation.

China is less than a month away from new year celebrations, when holiday revelers set off fireworks. There are frequent fireworks-related incidents at factories in the weeks leading to the holiday, as China generally has a poor record in workplace safety.

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?

Are drones the 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 and certainly isn’t the fireworks of the future but still pretty cool!.  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.
