Have you enjoyed the novelty and aerial fireworks the past couple years? Well, they are back and we have some of last year's favorites and a bunch of great new ones. Along with the impressive aerials, there are a ton of fun ‘safe and sane', novelty fireworks, and combination packages.
What's the difference between ‘safe and sane' and aerials? Safe and sane fireworks are defined as fireworks that do no fly or explode. Your colorful fountains, sparklers, ground spinners, and snappers would fall under safe and sane fireworks. Aerial cakes are fireworks that use a single fuse to light several tubes in sequence and can shoot up to 150 feet in the air.
We want to you to enjoy your fireworks displays and do it safely. That's why representatives from your local Harmons stores visited TNT Fireworks for an informational meeting and preview of what is available this year. Our associates can help explain the differences in the types of fireworks and give suggestions on their favorites.
Have fun, but be safe and courteous when enjoying fireworks festivities. Always follow the safety recommendations on the label. Visit TNT's safety page, The National Council on Fireworks Safety, and Utah Department of Public Safety for great common sense and safety information. Know the ordinances in your area and observe any fire restrictions and discharge times. The state of Utah lists the following as discharge dates and times: July 1-7 until 11pm, July 4 until midnight and July 21-27 until 11pm, July 24 until midnight.
Here are some examples of the aerial fireworks you will be able to purchase at Harmons.
