More fireworks

I came across some more fireworks from an old stash I remembered I had. Nothing too spectacular, but you can definately count on the emission of flame and sparks with these!

I love fireworks, always have and probably always will. I have always been so fascinated with fireworks graphics/packaging. Of course I’m talking about the consumer fireworks you and I buy at the stands and such. They come is such colorful packaging, they’re all made in China and ’emit showers of sparks.’ In fact that is one of my favorite phrases on fireworks ‘caution’ labels. Here are some more…

*LIGHT FUSE AND GET AWAY!

*SHOOTS FLAMING BALLS

*EMITS SHOWERS OF SPARKS

*REPORTS

Parachute Fireworks

I especially love older labels on fireworks - where everything is hand drawn. It makes you feel like your fireworks were all carefully handmade just for you, even down to the label. I don't know, but the guy on this particular box looks a little creepy.
