500-gram cakes will have between 350- 500 grams, and the effects will vary between different varieties. The best way to get an idea of which zipper cakes are best for your show is to watch videos that allow you to see what these fireworks look like in action.

Which Options Are Also Good Choices for the Budget-Conscious?

If you’re on a tighter budget, you might do well to consider 200-gram cakes. One of the best ways to describe these aerial fireworks providing a big show on a small budget.

Some other options to consider include:

Types of Fireworks: What About Saving by Buying Assortments?

Assortments can also be another great way to help you get more fireworks for your money. One of the great things about assortments is the price range. Some small assortments may retail for under $10-$14, while some of the larger assortments cost about $1000.

Two important things to think about include what types of fireworks products are legal in your area and how much time you’ll spend setting the fireworks off. One of the last things you want to do is buy an assortment so big that you won’t use everything.

On the other hand, assortments solve a common problem of having purchased too few fireworks. When you find that you don’t have enough to keep your show going, adding extra assortments will help you make sure you have everything you need.
