Macau International Fireworks Competition 2007

Last night was the opening of the 19th Macau International Fireworks competition. First up was Kimbolton Fireworks of England and second was Hanhwa from Korea. Unfortunately Macau was surrounded by smog, which resulted in low visibility but nevertheless the fireworks could be seen from the Macau Tower, which is where the videos were taken.

This is a 20 minute video of the Kimbolton Fireworks Display on 15th September 2007.

National Fireworks Association Expo September 2007 - Cincinnati

We were at the NFA Expo in Cincinnati last week. It was a great convention with about 600 people attending. Our demo on Friday night was a great success! For those who weren't able to get to Cincinnati, you can preview some segments right here. We will have a full video available soon on DVD!!

The show was designed by John Sagaria using Shogun consumer fireworks and Vulcan display products. It tells the story of a couple going into a fireworks store to buy some fireworks, and ends with the wife "accidentally" setting off a huge fireworks display that was meant for a show in Dallas.

Thanks a lot to John S, John W, Frank, Roberta, John L, Mike, Art, Jimmy, Lucio, Gary, Ashmead, the team from China and those last minute additional help. Great teamwork!!
