Are you going to host a fall picnic this year? Fireworks are traditionally used to celebrate Independence Day, but there is no limit to how often they can be used, and you may find that lighting off several rounds at the end of the gathering will be very entertaining for your friends and family members who attend the event. Since fireworks can be costly and dangerous if not handled properly, get your preparations in order well before the picnic.
Choose A Firework Kit That Contains An Array Of Explosives
Professional and consumer-grade fireworks vary in intensity. Professional fireworks are usually much more powerful and have the capability to shoot up higher in the air. If you are a novice with little or no experience and plan on overseeing the fireworks exhibit, purchase a variety kit that includes bottle rockets, Roman candles, spinners, and sparklers.
All or some of these varieties may be available for purchase in the state that you live in. If you live in a state that does not allow private individuals to purchase or use fireworks, you will need to higher a professional demonstrator. It wouldn't be wise to purchase fireworks from out-of-state and then bring them back to your residence. If you get caught with fireworks and have no right to possess them, you could face a stiff fine if you are caught.
Set Up An Outdoor Area To Light The Fireworks And Hire A Demonstrator
The outdoor area where the fireworks will be launched should be level and not nearby anything that is flammable. Use concrete blocks as launching areas for fireworks that are going to be elevated slightly. The launching area will prevent you from needing to directly handle any of the explosives. When you purchase the fireworks, buy a long-handled lighting implement to ignite them.
Plan on keeping the fireworks on your property for the duration of the event. If you were to transport the fireworks to a public venue or outdoor location, you would need a permit to do so, and you may even need to satisfy additional requirements, depending upon your location.
If you are wary about lighting the fireworks on your own, hire a demonstrator. A demonstrator knows how to safely handle fireworks and may even supply their own products to provide you and your guests with a dazzling and entertaining 'show'. Set up a seating area that is far enough away from the area where the fireworks will be lit so that nobody will be in danger of getting injured.
