Not Just for the 4th of July

Fireworks are entertainment enjoyed year round, adding fun and flair to sporting events, concerts, weddings and any special event.

The fireworks industry takes great pride in entertaining millions of Americans and helping our great nation celebrate its pride & patriotism on Independence Day, as well as adding sparkle to events throughout the year.

Bringing Communities Together

Fireworks remain one of the few ways American families can escape their fast-paced, technology-laden lives to enjoy a multi-generational family activity full of beautiful colors and bright lights. Events that include fireworks displays can add millions of dollars to local economies and sales from backyard fireworks raise significant tax revenue.

Each year, non-profits such as the 4-H, local high school marching bands and churches benefit from fireworks sales by manning fireworks stands and having a portion of their sales proceeds go directly toward supporting their charity.
