One of the hallmarks of the 4th of July is watching fireworks explode in the sky. This year, with many cities canceling their firework shows, it becomes even more important for individuals to purchase fireworks and put on their own fireworks show so that the tradition of fireworks shows on the 4th of July can continue.
Tip #1: Determine Your Budget
When it comes to putting on a 4th of July fireworks show, you need to start by determining your budget. It is easy to walk into a firework shop and spend hundreds of dollars.
Putting on a real fireworks show requires you to make an investment, so you need to make sure you know how much money you have to spend. This will help you focus your buying as you work your way through the shop.
Tip #2: Don't Go for the Curated Variety Packs
Second, when it comes to purchasing fireworks, don't spend all your money on curated variety packs. Variety packs are great if you don't know what you want, or you are putting on a small show.
If you are trying to put on a large show, you are going to want to skip the variety pack, and instead build your own packs. Choose the items that you want for your show individually; that way, you will know exactly what you are buying.
Tip #3: Build Your Show
When you start to buy fireworks, work to build your show. You are going to want to start with a ground show. A ground show is designed to entertain your immediate audience. It is a great way to build up anticipation for the show in the air.
From there, start with some short ground fireworks that are not too high, but will get your audience excited. From there, you want to build up to your build show in the air. The air show is all about where it is at, so that is where you want to spend most of your budget.
Tip #4: Ask for Recommendations
Finally, you are going to want to ask for recommendations. It is impossible to know what all the fireworks look like, which is why you are going to want to ask for assistance picking out your fireworks. Let them know what type of fireworks you are looking for, and the vibe you are trying to create.
They will be able to help you pick fireworks that are the right height for the show you want to put on. The fireworks salespeople will also be able to help you pick out the right color of fireworks as well, if you are trying to go for a color-coordinated shows.
When it comes to purchasing fireworks, you need to know your budget. Then, you need to build your show from the ground-up, choosing individual fireworks instead of a curated package. Be sure to ask the salespeople for recommendations building your show.
