“With being busy setting off other fireworks during our display I didn't get to actually see this firework, but the visual impact is secondary - the sound is nothing short of comical. I heard the shots and I heard the laughter from the crowd - and apart from some massive finale fireworks, these were the highlight of the night. We'll definitely buying a couple more for next year's event.” - Gavin
