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:

Fireworks used in Boston Bombings?

No way, no how!  There is already silly talk of president Obama using executive order to force a nation wide ban on fireworks.  Come on people, this is not only possible it may be the biggest knee jerk reaction ever!

While the suspects may (or may not) have purchased fireworks, the amount claimed would not have near the power needed to produce the results we saw in Boston.  In Fact, there are many, many readily available common household items that are far more energetic than what the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission allows in Fireworks.

Drought continues to subside: Good news for fireworks in 2013!

   “March 13th 2013 
      The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Warning for the Mississippi River at Alton from Wednesday afternoon through next Tuesday March 19th. As of Tuesday at noon, the stage was 18.6 feet. Flood stage is 21 feet.  The river is expected to crest near 22.2 feet early Friday morning and remain above flood stage until early next Tuesday morning.”

   Well there’s a welcome warning!  The largest river in the country is spilling over it’s banks from recent rains and snow melt and after last years devastating drought, things are off to a great start for this year weather wise.  Cool and wet are a great combination for all the upcoming product demo’s as new fireworks flow in from China, many ahead of schedule.

Major drought relief, burn bans lifted!

2012 will be remembered for a loooong time as the worst year in decades for firework sales across much of the USA.  Sales in some areas were down as much as 80% even where mandatory bans were not implemented by local government agencies.   Starting in September the rains returned to much of the country and have continued, slowly but surely lessening the droughts grip.  At the time of this writing rains have greened things up nicely just in time for fantastic fall colors!  Retailers are banking on an above average winter season, specifically New Years Eve celebrations with fireworks to help get them back in the black and reduce inventory to make room for the 2013 products now in production in China.  Online fireworks sales are expected to be about the only sector that can hope to report increased sales this year, and that trend should continue as bargain shoppers continue to use the internet to find the convenience and savings potential of having fireworks delivered right to their door steps.

Fireworks safety, Burn Bans and Record Drought.

The summer of 2012 is turning out to be a real scorcher as far as temperatures, and well under average precipitation as of late June has officials concerned.  Forecasts in the Midwest for the last week of June show high temperatures as extreme as 113 degrees with heat indices touching 120.  Meteorologists say the the heat indices would actually be even worse, but the humidity and dew points are lower then normal ranging in the 50’s. This just adds to the fire dangers, toss in a gentle breeze and a spark can become a raging inferno in mere minutes under these conditions.
