Fireworks are deep-seated in world history, stretching as far back as 2nd century China. Even before the discovery of gunpowder, the use of explosives for celebration was commonplace, often used to ward off spirits or simply spice up an event. However, the firework that we picture today wasn’t invented until much more recently. Around the 1400s, artisans in Italy used firecrackers to perfect the art of the aerial shell, much like what we see today. Then, in the 1800s, salts were added to the fireworks to produce different colours, something that was previously impossible. The firework could launch into the air, exploding into colours. Spark-based fountains and wheels were invented around this time too, spinning in circles and spewing hot, vibrant colours all along the ground.
Nowadays, a plethora of firework types are available, suiting every need to every occasion. For small parties with children, handheld sparklers or firecrackers (with adult supervision) are both fantastic and affordable. Tubes are also great for such events, as they won’t fire too far up into the air. For more eventful or wild gatherings, classic aerial shell kits can be found online. These are re-loadable, and therefore will benefit from a good initial investment. Parachutes shoot into the air, explode, and then drop a figure or coloured canister that slowly parachutes to the ground. Bottle rockets shoot into the sky, emitting a squealing sound or some other effect.
Purchasing online is one of the best ways to ensure a fully stocked event for a low price. Purchasing your explosives in person at a kiosk has some benefits, but falls short in a lack of selection and a risk of popular models being sold out. Firework vendors don’t have an unlimited supply, and they have to order based on how much they think they’ll selland not how much they’ll end up selling. Online vendors, however, can order per purchase and ensure that every requested firework finds its way into the hands of the customer. This means that the only limiting factor of an online vendor supplying its customers is the firework manufacturer itself.
Not to mention, purchasing online generally means reduced cost. It’s much easier to sort through different firework types online from well-known and well-stocked retailers like Rocket Fireworks, rather than having to do it in person. Finding the type of firework you want is easy, and then it’s just a matter of finding the least expensive firework of that type, while ensuring that it meets your wants or needs. Lastly, there’s a certain appeal to delivery day, when you look out at your front door and see a package filled with fireworks, ready and waiting to be shot off in a brilliant display of colours and fire.
