I have a life-long facination with them. They are not only fun and loud, they are patriotic.

I had a thread similar to this 2 years ago. The premise is really "What is your Favorite"?

A lot of technology in personal fireworks this year as referenced to a few years ago.

What are the best you have found? ( Kindly leave the dangerous ones out!)

I will share some of mine as well!

Thanks

Seriously I like those little black charcoal things that turn into snakes.

Do they still make them?

You ever light them after dark? The snakes glow.....😊

Sure, you can even get them online! Probably the safest thing you can buy. Light them on a brick because the stain they leave is almost impossible to get rid of.

ELSEWHERE they drive my dogs crazy and subsequently myself and the wife.

Last time we had fireworks, I burned up the kitchen oven.

But in answer to your question 1) bottle rockets for great displays and 2) roman candles for attack weapons.

Still my all time small firework favorite.



Throw them on pavement and they fly off at least a 100 feet up. Whistle but no bang.

Back in the mid seventies, a friend and I were a little too buzzed and went onto a backroad to watch the fireworks in a field. They were amazing, they blew off right over our heads. Then about a minute later we were both saying ouch ouch. So we stayed right there for the half hour of the fireworks, boy did we have a lot of burn marks on us when we got to town and our clothes were full of little burn holes. Not every firework went right over us and burned us, just half of the bigger ones.

That was one of the most memorable fireworks I ever went to. My friend was called Freddy Bear, he was a pure Alaskan Indian.

The fun stuff 911 killed. Namely "Thunder bombs" a self contained mortar that sent up a green glowing ball and went BOOM bigtime! I miss them.

Smoke bombs are my favorite. The bigger (more smoke / longer lasting) the better. Especially the colorful ones.

As for "real" fireworks, I like them all, as long as they're happening within the week surrounding the 4th. We had nearby neighbors who used to think blowing off big mortars from 8p-3a every night for 3 months was a good idea. The cops never seemed to be able to "catch them in the act" until I lit their yard up with spotlights from my roof for a week straight while calling the police everytime they would start up.

Have anyone seen the laser light shows? So much better than fireworks and no fires.

I always give myself a minimum $100 budget for fireworks, but depending on my mood I may double it up. It has been up to $500 when I was younger, but my family got bigger and since they are little they like cheaper not as scary and dangerous fireworks anyways. For the last couple years, I buy a BOGO bulk pack of the snap-its they throw on the ground for $40 and I get eighty packs.

These baby cakes are two for $20 this year at Phantom Fireworks, and I personally have not seen that specific burst pattern recently. It will surely entertain the little ones I bet.
TNT fireworks has the 1,000 pc firecrackers rolls for ten dollars each. I am going to get two, one to light as the entire roll, and another to take apart for the older two to light individually. They also like to snap them down the middle. When you light them that way, they just become an instant flare, and their concussive potential is diminished to a much safer level.

I want to look around more before I buy roman candles.

Now one new finisher they have on sale for $139.99 is a helluva show. It is over quick, but damn it is lovely. I think its this one called corruption 2.0, I #ing love it!
Which one do you think is better the first or or the second?



I also digging Missle War, it looks just breathtaking and I may have to get one if the price is right.


I keep it modest since I am not trying to impress some development community trying to outshine the head of the HOA or something.
