Types of Fireworks Displays
No other form of entertainment can match the beauty, spectacle, power, mystery, and visual impact of a Fireworks Display. It's no surprise that so many of our National Events, including Australia Day Celebrations and New Years Eve, traditionally end with a magnificent Fireworks display
Fireworks displays have been an essential feature of community celebrations world-wide, for hundreds of years. Fireworks remain as popular today, as they always have been, providing a spectacular finale to all community events including Fetes, Fairs, Festivals, Shows and Carnivals.
INDOOR/CLOSE PROXIMITY EVENTS:
Close Proximity Pyrotechnics and Indoor Fireworks Displays can be used to great effect in a variety of applications including Sporting Stadiums, Theatres, Nightclubs and Weddings. Indoor fireworks differ from other fireworks because they are specifically designed for close proximity use.
Whether you are entertaining clients, sponsoring an event, or launching your latest product; a tailor-made Fireworks display can be designed that suits the conditions of the site, the nature of the event, and the budget available.
If you are looking to book a Fireworks Display for the first time, there are a number of misconceptions to be considered before organising your event:
FIREWORKS - THE MORE THE MERRIER
WRONG! Quality wins over quantity every time. A reasonable quantity of top quality fireworks will entertain a crowd far more than double the number of ordinary fireworks.
FIREWORKS DISPLAYS - THE LONGER THE BETTER
WRONG! A first-class Fireworks display lasting 5-10 minutes will be more than enough to entertain an audience ranging in size from a Private Party, to a Community Festival. Extended displays working from the same budget will only result in a loss of effect, momentum, enjoyment, and overall impact of the display.
JUST USE BIG ROCKETS
WRONG! Big Rockets are fine providing there is sufficient open space for the Rockets to fall, the crowd has clear visibility of the complete Fireworks area, and the budget can handle the cost of 10 or so minutes of high-price Rockets. Considering the more economical small to medium sized Fireworks last 4-5 times longer than the large Rockets, the best displays feature a variety of fireworks sizes and styles. They gradually build from start to finish, with the "big guns" coming out in the grand finale.
FIREWORKS DISPLAYS CAN'T PROCEED IN THE RAIN
WRONG! Contrary to popular belief, Fireworks Displays can proceed in wet weather, providing the necessary precautions are taken when setting up. Whilst rain may not have a detrimental effect on the Fireworks display itself, you may find the audience starts thinning out if the wet weather sets in for a lengthy period.
FIREWORKS DISPLAYS ARE SAFE IN WINDY WEATHERWRONG!
Strong wind, rather than rain, is actually the most dangerous weather condition you may be faced with. Two factors come into play; wind strength and wind direction. A Fireworks Display should not proceed if there is a risk of Fireworks debris being carried over the audience.
Fireworks Display Sequence
A Fireworks Display can be generally divided into three basic sections:
The introduction to a display can commence either with a loud opening, which has the advantage of gaining the audience attention, or by starting slowly and building up the display gradually.
This is the main segment of your display, which should feature a wide variety of effects, regularly rotated to maintain the interest of the audience. Some displays build up the tempo...have a quiet section...then build up again, while other displays have a steady increase in pace throughout.
A spectacular finale to the display is vital. This is where we see the big rockets, explosions of colour, and awesome light effects. The final Rocket is usually the biggest of them all, signalling the end to a magnificent show.
Planning Your Display
Now that a decision has been made to proceed with a Fireworks display, there are certain steps that need to be taken during the planning phase of the event:
DECIDE ON A LOCATION
Most outdoor Fireworks Displays will require a Safety Perimeter to be established around the actual Fireworks. The perimeter must be cordoned off, with no public access during the display. This may be a determining factor in the location of your display, as the area required will be quite large, depending on the local Council regulations. Your Fireworks Display Company will offer a obligation free site inspection, with advice as to the best location for the display.
APPLY FOR PERMITS
A permit will be required from most local Councils for a Fireworks Display. Depending on the location and size of the display, the permit may take several months to be finalised, so start the planning stage well before the date of the event. Certain documentation may be be required for the Permit Application, including the Pyrotechnics License and Insurance details, along with a general Site Plan of the display.
DETERMINE A BUDGET
In general, the larger the budget, the bigger the display. Most school, small festival, and corporate Fireworks displays cost between $1,600 and $2,500. At the other end of the scale, major displays range in cost from $10,000 to $40,000.
Approach a number of reputable Fireworks Pyrotechnicians in your area requesting a quote. Advise each company of your budget, along with the type of event, location and audience. Ensure a detailed proposal is received including:
- * Duration of the display
- * Types & colours of Fireworks used
- * Are the Fireworks choreographed to music?
- * What are the choices of music?
- * Total Cost of the Display including GST?
- * When is a deposit due? When is the balance due?
- * What are the financial implications if the event is cancelled due to wet weather?
- * What are the financial implications if the fireworks are cancelled due to strong wind?
- * A list of regular events the company attends along with referrals
