Types of Fireworks
Ever since fireworks were invented by the Chinese, there have been a multitude of varieties created by pyrotechnics experts throughout the years. Below are some of the most common fireworks:
Firecrackers are basically a fused black powder packed in a tube. When lit, it produces loud noise.
Sparklers burn brightly for 30 seconds to a minute and give off sparks of light.
Cake is a type of firework which produces different sound and visual effects.
Fountains are a type of firework which shoots sparks several meters into the air.
Waterfalls are suspended and held by a rope and when lit, produce a big wall of light that resembles a waterfall.
Roman candles are a smaller version of the cake; the roman candle shoots balls of light in succession.
Aerial shells are shot in the air and bursts mid-flight. Patterns of colors are then created.
Safety notice: Fireworks should not be lit indoors, especially sparklers. A responsible adult should be present when handling and lighting fireworks.
