The Benefits of Coordinating a Neighborhood Fireworks Show

Planning a neighborhood fireworks show for the 4th of July may seem a little over-the-top if you don't usually celebrate in big style. However, there are many benefits to combining your efforts with your friends and neighbors. While the planning stages may seem daunting at first, consider these advantages that will make your Independence Day fireworks show one to remember:

  1. You get more "bang" for your buck. By pooling your resources with your neighbors, the amount of money you have to spend on fireworks increases significantly. Instead of having $100 to spend, you may have $500 to put toward fireworks, depending on how many neighbors pitch in. As a result, your show will be more impressive, last longer and feature more expensive fireworks, which means a better show for everyone involved.
  2. Your show has more features. When you buy fireworks on your own, it's possible that your budget limits what you can purchase. When you have your resources combined with your neighbors and friends, you may have funds available to get fireworks elements that create a definitive beginning, middle and end to your show, including an amazing finale.
  3. You don't have to compete for attention. Nothing is worse than starting your own display and having it interrupted with two or three others going on in your neighborhood. Nobody knows where to look! When your neighborhood works together to create a stellar show, nobody is overlapping another display. It all happens at the same time, in the same place. Your audience doesn't have to crane their necks to see something happening a block over and miss what's going on in your own yard.
  4. Lighting fireworks on your own is hard work. Working with your friends and neighbors on a community display means that you have more manpower participating in lighting them. While you may be charged with lighting off the finale pieces, others may take care of the beginning or middle parts of the show. They will assist setting them up. AND, possibly the best part is that you have others there to help you clean up the debris afterward.
  5. It's a great chance to meet your neighbors. As life happens at such a fast pace, it's easy to lose touch with your neighbors. And, it's possible that you don't even know them! Throwing a community Independence Day bash is a great way to connect with those who live around you. Incorporate a potluck, games and a social atmosphere where you can all get to know each other just a little better...even if it's just for a few hours. The relationships you start fostering during the 4th of July may grow to real friendships during the rest of the year.
