Fireworks For Fathers Day 2014

Fireworks For Fathers Day 2014 – Sunday 15th June 2014

Most countries celebrate Fathers Day on the third Sunday in June and in some, the day is associated with St Josephs Day. It celebrates fatherhood and male parenting across the globe and for those of us really were fortunate enough to have brilliant dads, it give you a chance to spoil them a little.

Fathers day is stated as being founded in Washington in the USA in 1910 but it was many years to become firmly established and it wasn’t until former President, Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

Celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June in the vast majority of countries it is still celebrated on a wide number of days in the rest of the world too.

Now we have all bought some truly heinous gifts for Fathers Day I’m sure. My mum for example once bought both my grandfathers (her father and my own dad’s father) a hair treatment set with brush, comb, lotion etc. It was a very nice gift until you take into account that both my grampa and grandy were both bald from their early twenties!

Today of course we spend a small fortune on golfing memorabilia, Bart Simpson slippers and socks and the obligatory ‘best dad in the world’ cups but surely, if your dad loves fireworks, maybe you could get him one or two pieces to fire on the evening or indeed at a future date when you have a family gathering. With prices starting from under £10 to a massive barrage for just under a hundred, we have literally a MASSIVE range to choose from.

There are of course over 300 different pyro pieces here at Epic so come over to see us and we will do everything to ensure that this Fathers Day, your dad will spend the whole day smiling.

The best-selling item so far for Fathers Day is the Sky Thriller Rocket. With a massive single burst of giant glittering golden willow and a seemingly unending descent of beautiful slow falling twinkling stars that hang in the sky for ages. The Sky Thriller finale rocket has been designed to thrill, and that’s exactly what it does. Just £14.95 and available for collection or delivery (add £9.95 to the cost) this cracker of a rocket will make his day.

Happy Fathers Day

Football World Cup 2014 #EpicFireworks

There is little in this world that makes a football fan go weak at the knees in this Country but the World Cup is just the ticket for the fans of ‘the beautiful game’.

2014 sees the 20th World Cup get under way in Brazil on 12th June and it will continue until 13th July when the final is played and its all over for another four years.

The World Cup competition started in 1930 when FIFA President, Jules Rimet, after whom the coveted World Cup trophy was named, decided to host an international tournament with only 13 teams.

Today, the event starts with almost 200 teams from every corner of the World who compete during the two-year long qualifiers to win the chance to take part in the last 32.

Out of the 19 tournaments competed in since its inception the cup has only ever been lifted by 8 differing national teams. Of course anyone above 45 or so will remember fondly the magnificent prowess of the magnificent Pele and in latter years, Ronaldinho and Ronaldao took the reigns and continued in the same vein. Pele of course was on the winning side in 1958, 1962 and 1970 and the Brazilians have won the cup 5 times already and with their strong defensive side, they are tipped well for another win this year but of course the England squad may have other ideas.

Other teams have won it multiple times too and in fact our first match is against Italy who have won the cup four times already the second, against Uruguay who again have won twice so we definitely do not have an easy ride through the first round until the final match of the group against Costa Rica.

There are a few positives to holding the competition in Brazil not least of all that they are unlikely to come across much snow or rain but the heat will be restrictive so fingers crossed that steps in their training this has really been concentrated on.

England’s First Round matches are as follows:

14th June 2014 – England Vs Italy 23:00 hours
19th June 2014 – Uruguay Vs England 20:00 hours
24th June 2014 – Costa Rica Vs England 17:00 hours

If you are planning to have a World Cup party or indeed a few family and friends round for a beer to watch the matches on TV, why not get a few fireworks in to celebrate every win England manage along the way, we have something for everyone’s budget and taste.
