Ghosts, Ghouls, & Fireworks
Everyone knows that fireworks are a MUST for celebrating the 4th of July and the start of a New Year.  But few people have considered how fireworks can enhance the celebration of some other holidays as well.  Halloween is a great  (but often overlooked) occasion for fireworks! Disney World is already holding yearly Halloween fireworks displays, and there's no reason that families can't also get in on the fun.  

Halloween fireworks can certainly add a unique flair to the season's spooky scenes.  You may find a few specific types of fireworks to be especially exciting at your ghoulish gatherings this Halloween:

  • Crazy Eyeballs- Eyeballs are a classic element in Halloween decor.  Now you can expand on that theme with these spooky sparklers.  These disembodied eyeballs spin around and have a big finish that will provide onlookers with a (safe) scare or two.
  • Color Smoke Balls- Another great way to add to the haunted atmosphere of your Halloween season is with these clay color smoke balls.  They come in a variety of colors so you can use classic Halloween orange, a witchy purple, or a monster green to add some color to your night.
  • Sky Lanterns- These sky lanterns will seem to literally levitate as you release them into the night sky.  When you light and release your sky lantern, it will remain airborne for as long as its flame is lit.  Afterwards, the completely biodegradable lantern will just as magically float back down to the ground. Sky lanterns come in many different colors and some even come with season-appropriate designs such as pumpkin jack-o-lanterns, aliens, and witches.

Halloween fireworks are a great way to encourage family bonding, teach safety, and create lasting memories for everyone involved.  For all your fireworks needs, remember that you can rely on Golf Ball Outlet and Fireworks Mega Store, South Carolina's premiere fireworks outlet.
