What’s new in fireworks 2010? All of the same tried and true nostalgic items and lots of new, soon-to-be-favorite items to make your party a blast. These low-grade pyrotechnic explosives are used for celebrations and festivities around the world from the Chinese New Year to the Fourth of July. The main job of fireworks is to create any combination of light, smoke, noise, or floating effects such as confetti blasts – oh, and to create a fun atmosphere, too!.
The history of fireworks dates back more than 700 years, all the way back to the 12th century China where they were incorporated into religious events. Black gunpowder was developed not long afterward and fireworks started being used in combat – fireworks could fly much farther than a cannonball or a long bow and were therefore a very effective form of military force. In the 1700s, an American army colonel invented a firework rocket which had a trajectory of up to four miles. Even with the cool fireworks 2010, this is why we still sing about “the rocket’s red glare” in the national anthem.
But just as fireworks 2010 are used for celebrating, they were also a cause for jubilation with America’s early settlers. When the first president, George Washington, was inaugurated in 1789, a huge fireworks show with a colorful and noisy display of pyrotechnic effects filled the sky. Today, fireworks 2010 are found everywhere from rock concerts and sporting events to the grand finale of storybook weddings. Even amusement parks such as Disney World put a magical ending to a perfect day of family fun with huge fireworks shows. And, you won’t be surprised to find out that the Walt Disney Company is the largest consumer of fireworks in the United States.
If you are planning your own fireworks 2010 show, you’ll want to stock up your arsenal with some of the most popular items. For all-around family fun, sparklers, confetti poppers and fun firework novelties shaped like trucks and tanks will keep all ages entertained. If you’re looking to make a big impression, artillery shells are the way to go for fireworks 2010. These aerial pyrotechnic elements are loaded into tubes and shot skyward where they burst into a beautiful array of colorful designs such as chrysanthemums, peonies, spiders and multi-break shells. Fountains, Roman candles, spinners, repeater cakes and smoke items are all popular too!
When you are putting on your fireworks 2010 show, it is important to keep safety at the top of the list. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for each type of firework; every pyrotechnic composition will need to be handled differently. Keep a bucket of water or connected hose on hand to fully extinguish used sparklers, fountains and other fireworks – they can remain deceivingly hot for a long time. Another thing to remember; local laws and regulations overseeing the purchase and use of fireworks 2010 vary widely from place to place – learn yours laws and be responsible!
