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.

The Malta International Fireworks Festival

We love our fireworks here at US Fireworks, but the people of Malta really love fireworks!   Fireworks have two historical traditions.   The Italian tradition and the Oriental Tradition.

Fireworks made in the Oriental Tradition have become the standard commercial style of fireworks because the cost to manufacturer is lower.   Therefore, the Italian style shells are very rare and seldom seen in the USA.

What makes Italian style fireworks unique is that they use cylindrical construction, rather then spherical construction.

A photo of a Maltese style shell being constructed can be seen below:
