I first seen this in Brasil, fifty years ago. Some did set off fires on homes, pretty but not safe.
Most waited till the wind was going out to sea.

Sooooo? FR Group Buy? I know a guy who's family used to manufacture fireworks in the US, but now does importing. I am sure I can get a lead on a pallet of them.

Some campers set several of these off at Poverty Point Camp Ground during Memorial Day weekend, just at sunset. I watched them drift over a HUGE open (very dry) field toward what is now classified as a World Heritage Site along side the pyramids and the great wall of China, which ALSO has a huge open grassy area with 4K year old mounds....until they disappeared.

Nope, I didn't report them but I saw the park police headed in their direction quickly thereafter, and rightly so in my not-so-humble opinion. It appeared those were constructed of small brown paper bags.

These "uncontrolled fire driven articles of litter" drifted very low over the entire park (and RVs) before they gained altitude.

And NO, I don't like the oversized bottle rockets that parents let KIDS launch on holidays either. I picked up no less than a dozen of the spent ones out of our yard after 07/04...found another one Saturday in the back yard. The type that does this also ignores the 10 PM curfew on fireworks.

Back when I was a teen my brother taped a sparkler to an arrow and launched it skyward. Uhhh it landed on the roof of a friend's house. He had to work a summer job to pay for the shingle damage caused by the small fire it started before he could grab a ladder, climb his stupid hind end up there and put it out. But, he learned from it....never pulled that idiotic stunt again.

Granny was correct: it's all fun and games until someone puts their eye out


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:
Flagstaff 5er 2014 8528 IKWS, Platinum Package, Regency Interior "Buffy"
F250 Super Duty 2013 Tuxedo Black "Biff"
