Top 10 Best Fireworks Stores & Stands in Kansas City

Did you know that fireworks are believed to have originally been used in China? In the second century B.C. the first natural “firecrackers” were actually bamboo stalks that exploded with a bang due to overheating of the hollow air pockets when thrown in a fire. Over the years, more sophisticated fireworks were produced around the world, with fireworks or pyrotechnics now taking centerstage. China remains the largest manufacturer and exporter of fireworks in the world.

In the US, fireworks have been used since 1777 on Independence Day, marking the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Be it a small party or national celebrations, nobody can deny the fuzzy feeling that engulfs us once the fireworks start cracking in splendor. Fireworks undeniably form the main attraction and highlight of both traditional, religious or national celebrations.

Fireworks take many forms and produce four primary effects: noise, light, smoke and floating materials (mostly confetti). They may burn with colored flames and sparks of either red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and silver or several/all in one display.

In Kansas City, the July 4 Independence Day Celebrations have always been a major event punctuated with generous fantastic displays of fireworks across the city. Despite the many fabulous options, you will agree that Overland Park’s Star Spangled Spectacular has always been the apple of all our eyes.  The fireworks show in Olathe begins at approximately 9:45 p.m. on July 4 at the College Boulevard Activity Center. Weston’s July 4 celebrations features a full day of events, with live music and entertainment, a parade and a fireworks show starting 9:45 p.m.
