Fireworks and Halloween

Halloween and Epic Fireworks

You have to hand it to them, love ‘em or hate ‘em, Americans certainly know how to have a Halloween fireworks party.

Halloween has been a feature of the celebratory calendar in the states for many years and it gets bigger and more elaborate each one that passes. This year, the residents of Rome, one of the largest cities in Georgia, held a 5 kilometer ‘Zombie-a-thon’ fun run where the runners had to ‘escape the clutches of the hundreds of ‘zombies’ waiting to catch them. They had to run with flags around their waists which if taken by a zombie meant that you became a zombie runner.

After the runners had all crossed the finish line, the event moved to the block parties being held around the centre of the city. There were live performances by local band Chasing December, dance performances by The Synergy Dance team and a train through the centre and the big band sound was delivered by Mingo Fishtrap (I know, the name is a little odd).

Of course, no self-respecting Halloween Event would be the same without some beautiful fireworks for the event.

The residents were treated to a full display featuring some really beautiful fireworks and some absolutely spectacular shells.

The event was said to be a rip-roaring success and long may it continue.

If you are holding a Halloween event, why not include a small fireworks display. There are some beautiful fireworks available which will suit everything from a small garden to a field the size of a football pitch available at Epic Fireworks so get your order in and we can deliver to you in a couple of days.

We have some brilliant fireworks, some of which are Halloween themed, check out the Screaming SpidersDevils Den, Diablo and Goblins Gold.

FIRE Fascination, Firework and Festival

Do you remember your first time?

Check this out 🙂

I have just spent the last few hours going through the amazing pictures and the fantastic old-school artwork of a fascinating new book called FIRE Fascination, Firework and Festival by Mark Fleming.

FIRE explores how ancient Pagan festivals have given rise to Halloween and Bonfire Night, two of our most evocative and lasting celebrations. The book looks at gunpowder, and how it helped shape the surface of our planet as well as give us the mesmerizing world of pyrotechnics. It looks too at how history has taken Guy Fawkes from being a hated villain to being the icon of the digital age and the grinning face of firework night. Remembered too are the companies of a lost industry that once made November their own.

FIRE is released first in a  FREE  (YES, we said free) PDF e-book version and a physical edition is planned for later in the year but will be subject to enough interest being shown to cover the printing costs.

Please share this fantastic piece of work with family and friends and let’s hope we generate enough interest so the book can go to print.

The epic fireworks team would like to congratulate Mark on his wonderful achievement and wish him the very best for the future.
