Ground effects fireworks smoke, crackle, sparkle and shimmer low to the ground to wow pyromaniacs of all ages. Our unique, family-friendly ground-based fireworks come in all colors and effects, from neon red and gold to fountain sparkles and glitter strobes.
Ground effects fireworks are precisely what they sound like — rather than shooting skyward like an aerial firework, they spout strobes and sparkles while popping, fizzing and cracking low to the ground. But they're by no means inferior to their aerial firework friends — they often steal the show!
There are several kinds of ground effects fireworks, including:
Ground fireworks shower light anywhere from 10 seconds to a few minutes. The fountain of pearls, glitter and sparks is exciting to witness from start to finish!
Fireworks originated in China during the Song dynasty. The first firework was a flamethrower fashioned from a bamboo stick filled with gun powder. The first firecracker was a rolled paper tube filled with gunpowder and a fuse. They were used to both intimidate enemies and entertain.
Fortunately, all you need to worry about is entertainment — and maybe one-upping the neighbors' light show!
You can experience the thrill of an aerial firework up close and personal with waterfall and fountain ground effect fireworks! They're also a great way to bookend an aerial firework display.
Smoke bombs, ground spinners and firecrackers are also perfect for a casual night of fun in the backyard without committing to a large firework display.
