facts about fireworks

Pittsburghers always have room for fireworks, but there’s something extra special about the Fourth of July show at the Point. Some fun facts about the loud lights:

• The largest-ever aerial fireworks shell blasted off Jan. 1, 2018, in United Arab Emirates, weighing 2,397 pounds.

• China makes nearly all of the world’s backyard fireworks and about 70 percent of professional display fireworks.

Green fireworks aren’t only a color. Environmentally friendly pyrotechnics are made with materials to replace pollutants found in other traditional types.

• Workers making fireworks shells don’t wear synthetic fabrics because of static electricity risks. Cotton it is.
