Fireworks displays in your area.

Spring has sprung, bring on the fireworks displays!

Soon the sun won’t be setting until 9pm, the smell of neighborhood BBQ grills will be a daily occurrence and summertime activities will be in full swing.  The first big holiday to celebrate with fireworks is only 7 weeks away, Memorial Day.  Cities and towns across the USA kick off this summer spectacular with fireworks displays for all to enjoy, but how to find them?

Besides local media such as television and radio sources, the internet is the best resource (thanks Al Gore!) we recommend a website such as this to find fireworks in your area

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!

Fireworks for Gender Reveal Party

Fireworks for Gender Reveal Parties – 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?

Put 2011 in the books as maybe the best Las Fallas ever!

During Valencias traditional holiday you will find displayed on every corner across the city giant narnots, paper mache figures over 20′ tall.

Every day at 2pm the city erupts with large firecrackers in a deafening mascleta…some of the loudest firecrackers in the world!

The mascletas have become a competition between neighborhoods to see who can make the best, before ending in the terremoto (meaning earthquake) literally hundreds of mascletas at once!
