Everything You Need to Know for the Best Fireworks Display this New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve is one of the most anticipated nights of the year for people of all ages across America. And the thing that comes to mind first is always fireworks.
With New Year’s Eve right around the corner, The Fireworks Lady is ready to get you started! Check out everything you need to know to have the best fireworks display on the block!
First, Some Safety Tips
Of course, nobody loves to talk about it, but safety is essential when it comes to fireworks. After all, we want you to keep all of your fingers this New Year!
You should also be aware that even the most minor fireworks can cause serious injury if not treated with care.
Pick the Right Location
While it can often be overlooked, choosing a site that avoids trees and other objects for at least one square mile is the first step to a safe and enjoyable time.
Injury numbers have continued to increase over the years thanks to carelessness by fireworks users. The first step you need to take is to find exposed and flat ground that avoids trees for at least one square mile. Doing so could save you and any other property around from suffering damage.
Run, Forrest, Run!
If you’re planning to light fireworks this holiday, we want to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable time.
Some people like to use their hands as buffers between themselves and the explosion, but this is never a good idea. Fingers will be lost!
If you’re going to light fireworks, it’s important to remember that you should get the you-know-what out of there as quickly as possible. Even the most confident pyrotechnic users should never stand too close to the explosion area.
One Firework At A Time
Another great way to enjoy your next celebration safely is to make sure you light one firework at a time. Tying detonation strings together is a surefire way to create danger for you and your family.
Avoid Illegal Fireworks
If you plan to shoot off fireworks this New Year’s Eve, we recommend you stick to the legal ones.
Sure, it might seem like a good idea to save a few bucks by buying illegal fireworks from the guy who sells out of his driveway, but trust us—it’s not worth it. Illegal fireworks are often made incorrectly and can be downright dangerous.
Which Types of Fireworks are Best?
Cakes are a great go-to for the New Year’s party that wants a big show!
They generally consist of rockets or roman candles packed together into one package. Cakes possess an internal fuse system, unlike any other firework, that allows them to ignite automatically.
If you’ve ever seen a “grand finale,” you can ensure this was made of a TON of cakes.
The Rocket is a popular firework that has been around for centuries. When launched into the air, it can climb to an enormous height—up to 150 feet in some cases! Depending on what kind you purchase, rockets can explode with a loud bang and bring your New Year’s Eve party skyward.
While a sparkler is easy and safe to use, there’s nothing quite like the straightforward enjoyment it brings to those of all ages.
Whichever sparkler you choose, they are a perfect fit for a New Year’s Eve party just looking to have some fun with some straightforward fireworks. Not to mention, these can be extremely safe for the youngsters in the family.
Fountains are an excellent option for those who want to experience the beautiful visual element of a firework but without the loud and often surprising sound effects. Fountains would be perfect for a neighborhood that doesn’t allow too much noise from fireworks.
