WHAT: NEW WORLD RECORD FOR THE LARGEST AERIAL FIREWORK SHELL LAUNCHED WHERE: AL MARJAN ISLAND IN RAS AL KHAIMAH WHEN: NEW YEARS EVE 2018
2018 got off to a great start in the UAE with them successfully managing to launch the biggest recorded aerial firework shell.
The record was previously held by Kounosu Firework Festival in Japan on 11th October 2014 which weighed an impressive 1024 kilos.
The new record saw a shell weighing in at a massive 1089 kilos with a diameter of 1500 centimetres (that is just under 5 feet in old money!) burst in the skies over Al Marjan Island. It was absolutely SPECTACULAR and began with a ground break from which the shell was launched giving the effect of a beautiful emerging flower. The huge shell burst into a huge gold with silver tipped brocade changing from yellow to red as the stars floated majestically to earth.
The display was brought together to celebrate the beauty of the man-made island archipelago and was choreographed to music from around the world to encourage further tourism to the region.
The preceding display was under the watchful eye of Fireworks by Grucci, one of the original Italian Firework families who has been in the business for six generations and continues to delight all who see their magical displays. Most famously, they have been responsible for the Presidential inauguration fireworks for the last 8 presidents.
VERY WELL DONE TO THE UAE AND OF COURSE THE INDOMITABLE FIREWORKS BY GRUCCI
It is not commonly acknowledged that celebrating New Year with fireworks is a relatively new concept having really developed since the arrival of the New Millennium. Today, the firework industry receives an additional little boost with the purchases of fireworks to ‘let in’ the new year.
On New Year’s Eve you are legally allowed to light fireworks which must be finished by 1am on New Year’s Day. This year, we have added a couple of new compound cakes to our range to go along with our firm favourites to ensure that your night goes off with a BANG!!
Check these bad boys out:
· STAR FACTORY – This bad boy pumps out massive breaks and is probably one of our loudest single ignition boxes.
· CONSTELLATION – A beautiful 200 shot barrage with a fast firing fan finale.
· GLOBAL THUNDER – A massive 14kg single ignition cake with a 2 minute sky filling duration.
· PANDEMONIUM – 500 shots lasting 90 seconds and ends with an awesome finale.
They all have a running time of anything from 1 minute to 2 minutes but they are all light once and retire.
I would also add that all these products can be delivered to any UK mainland address for £20.00 so check them out and either give us a call or order online to be the envy of all your neighbours this New Year’s Eve.
