How to overcome the obstacles will depend on how we plan for our upcoming holiday or special events. July 4th, 2020 will fall on a Saturday. A time when people come together to enjoy quality time relaxing, enjoying the smell of barbeques, and taking in of a tradition, that is so exciting, sky filling, the every famous ground shaking fireworks displays. The million dollar question for 2020's July 4th is, will the show be cancelled?


With the spread of social disease, the Coronavirus, crowds in general will be smaller, if at all for this July 4th holiday season. It is anticipated people will stay closer to home sharing time with their family and friends in much smaller numbers. Neighborhood or family fireworks shows will become the new tradition for the future. The DIY backyard pyro's will be lighting up the neighborhood with whatever consumer fireworks they can get their hands on. 4th of July fireworks sales will empty the stores shelves quickly as the limited supply coming in from China can not be met due to the worldwide outbreak on this deadly Coronavirus. China, the world's leading manufacturers of fireworks for both professional and consumer fireworks has not been able to produce the necessary supply in a timely manner needed to light up skies with the amount of parties that will take place on this summer holiday.

Shop early! Inventory is what is available now. Shipments are way behind and more than likely will not make it to the United States before it is needed for the 4th of July holiday.

Pool monies with others which will allow you to buy larger quantities at lower prices warehouse direct.

Don't get caught up in the Buy 1 Get 1 ads. If you do the math, most Buy 1 Get 1 deals, are not deals at all. They are just moving more inventory.

Order a variety of items. Most popular items are fireworks cakes. One fuse sets off an entire show in a box. Cakes and based on how much powder is in each one totally. Like 200 gram or 500 gram cakes. Don't count the 200 gram cakes out. There are many that are great performers and work great in a fireworks show. Like "Road Trip" by World Class. Loaded with crackle and fits the bill. If you're into the bigger stuff in the 500 gram class, "Heavy Artillery" where the name fits the cake. Like the loud stuff? New on the market, but will sell out extremely fast are the "Growler" artillery shells. These are super charged canister shells that are loaded into HDPE shooting tubes that come with the kit. Each shell is loaded one at a time, but not recommended for amateurs in the DIY category. Warehouse direct fireworks from
