Fireworks at other times of year
Fireworks are often associated with November 5th in the United Kingdom, which is celebrated as Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Night. However, fireworks displays are not limited to this date and can be enjoyed at other times of the year for various occasions and events.
Some of the most common occasions for fireworks displays outside of November 5th include:
1. New Year’s Eve: Fireworks displays are often used to ring in the new year, with large displays taking place in major cities around the world and many families celebrating with fireworks in their gardens.
2. Independence Day: In the United States, July 4th is celebrated as Independence Day, and fireworks displays are a popular part of the festivities. As Alchemy Fireworks we provide many displays for our American friends at various air bases around the UK.
3. Weddings: Fireworks can be used to celebrate a wedding ceremony or reception, providing a spectacular and memorable display for the couple and their guests. These displays prove very popular throughout the summer months. Check out our sister site Alchemy Wedding Fireworks for more info and prices.
4. Festivals: Many cultural and religious festivals include fireworks displays as part of their celebrations, such as Diwali in India and Chinese New Year.
5. Sporting events: Fireworks displays and/or pyrotechnics are often used to mark the end of major sporting events, such as the Olympic Games or the World Cup.
It’s worth noting that laws around fireworks can vary depending on your location, so it’s important to check local regulations before planning a display. The Scottish government have recently passed new legislation surrounding fireworks and their use. At the time of writing, very few of the new laws have been introduced but please check with your local authority. Additionally, fireworks can be dangerous, and it’s essential to follow safety guidelines and precautions to ensure that everyone stays safe.
