How not to blow up.
Different types of fireworks, ranging from small to large & 10$ to 300$
Basically a little firework show all in one piece, so all you have to do is light the fuse, then sit back and enjoy the show
When ignited, the shell is propelled high into the air, where it bursts into a beautiful pattern of colors, much like the fireworks seen at professional displays.
Ground spinners spin around randomly at ground level, shooting out colored sparks and flames.The flame changes color several times, and the unbalanced spin makes the device looks like a bright flower as it rotates.
Not to be confused with the military device of the same name, firework mines produce upward, fan-shaped blasts of color and effects (look at the side of the box in the picture to get an idea
Fountains are devices that sit on the ground and emit showers of colored sparks upwards. Unlike repeaters, they don't shoot effects high into the air - only about ten feet
- Make sure you use appropriate fireworks with the appropriate setting. (IE: Small fireworks with small settings (& vice versa)
- Make sure a bucket of water or a working hose is always nearby.
- Light only one firework at a time!
- Keep Fireworks pointed AWAY from people.
- Soak used fireworks in water after use.

Huge Fireworks show ↓
A rocket can reach speeds of 150mph, however the shell can reach as high as 200 metres.
The largest chocolate firework was measuring 3m high and 1.5m in diameter and containing 60kg of Swiss Cailler chocolates. The firework was released in Zurich on New Year's Eve 2002.
Fireworks are not fun for animals. Always keep dogs and cats inside the house when fireworks are being let off. Stay calm and make sure they have somewhere to hide.
