Thank you for a great year of fireworks! Though many of us were hurt by droughts, 2012 had some great new fireworks (Whacky Tobacky, Hit the Road, Jack, The War Box, and Silver Screen, just to name a few) and some amazing fireworks shows.
We hope to make 2013 even better, not only with new product, but also with new fireworks brands. Sky Bacon has already started arriving, with firecrackers and sparklers available now. We may also have another brand ready for the 2013 4th of July season. Subscribe to our email list for the latest information.
From all of us at Spirit of '76: Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and a Booming New Year!

Two of the biggest global consumers of fireworks are undoubtedly the United States and the United Kingdom. When it comes to looking at fireworks laws and regulations, it is often astounding to consider the differences held across many countries, especially when there is so little difference in many fireworks products around the world.We looked at the main differences between the US and UK fireworks markets, specifically around regulation of sale and use.

The video below was sent to us from our customer Ed. He fired his 4th of July show using his new Cobra firing system and fireworks from Spirit of '76. Thanks Ed!
"See this clip of the last 3 minutes of my show last night. This was just the last 4 cues of the cobra and a lot of creative fusing. I had it set up in 3 sections each about 75ft apart from each other. Some of the taller shots are a little out of frame but otherwise the video came out pretty good. It was quite a show. Not bad for a rookie....check out the timing of the music and the fireworks right at the end..... :) Thanks for the great products and customer service Already planning on next year"
