" In the 13 years that I have run our Independence Day event, I have never been so moved or touched by a fireworks show. The music selection and the choreography gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. It was without a doubt the greatest tribute to our country we have ever presented. The feedback has been incredible and I am grateful for your part in it all. Thank you for an exceptional job!! "

" As President of the Freedom Fest organization in Morgan Hill, California it has been my pleasure to work directly with Fireworks America during my tenure. Freedom Fest has been producing 4th of July Parades and Firework displays in the local community for over 100 years. 2014 will be the 20th year our 20th year our organization has contracted with Fireworks America.

Fireworks America has consistently performed to our expectations and has made our events the spectacular display of fireworks that have drawn in excess of 20,000 people to our city location each year. As all event planners understand the necessity of timely logistics in event production we have found the professional staff of Fireworks America to be at the top of excellence in their field. They have shown consistent reliability with safety and the ability to coordinate with City, County and Fire Departments for regulation conformity.

Fireworks America provides professional up to date entertainment pyrotechnic devices from ground level set pieces to high level aerial shells. These shows have drawn the praise and continued excitement each year by those who have viewed their shows. These lively performances are always fully synchronized and choreographed to classic, patriotic and popular music.

I would encourage all organizations who are searching for a fireworks company to handle their 4th of July needs to do as Freedom Fest has and put Fireworks America on the top of the list.

" Jim Acker and the Fireworks America team provide our team and arena with some of the best pyrotechnics in the business. They do so with the utmost professionalism and integrity.

" We had the pleasure of working with Jim Acker and Fireworks America this past holiday season for our Holiday Party on the USS Hornet. We were lucky to have Jim, as he dealt with local authorities regarding our permits and also produced an amazing show for our party. He was very responsive to our requests, had great ideas for how to best utilize our budget, and we ended up with a great show which was timed perfectly with the soundtrack they had created just for our party theme. Although it was a freezing cold night, which required guests to stand outside to enjoy the show, the cold seemed to dissipate when the show began. We have gotten so many compliments on the enormity of the event and we can't be more thankful to Fireworks America for their hand in making it unforgettable.

We look forward to working with Jim again and I would highly recommend using Fireworks America to create a beautiful and breathtaking show for your event.

" The City of Lakewood Civic Center Block Party is held Sunday before Independence Day and attracts over 15,000 attendees each year. The Block Party offers a street fair, amusement rides and a main stage with a top tier band performing from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. The event culminates with a twenty minute firwork show produced by Fireworks America. Every year we receive hundreds of positive comments on how much they enjoyed the fireworks at the event.

It has been my pleasure to work directly with Fireworks America for the past five years. Matt Biolchino is the representative from Fireworks America who handles our show. Matt handles every step of the production from reviewing the launch zone site at the Lakewood Center Mall. to meeting with the local Fire Inspector, from securing all permits to actually being on-site as the Licensed Pyrotechnic Operator. Matt fully synchronizes the fireworks show and choreographs the show to music that is selected by the Block Party commitee.

Fireworks America has consistently performed to our expectations and has made our event the most attended fireworks display in the area. Fireworks America provides professional up to date entertainment pyrotechnic devices including high level aerial shells. These shows have drawn praise and continued excitement every year!

I highly recommend Fireworks America and would encourage and organizations searching for a fireworks company to secure their services.

" Each year Fireworks America produces the pyrotechnic display at the annual 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular held at the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base. This event is a collaborative event between the cities of Cypress, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, the Rossmoor Community Services District, and the Joint Forces Training Base and hosts approximately 25,000 spectators each year.

I have been coordinating this event for Cypress the past 7 years and have enjoyed the relationship with Fireworks America. Besides the amazing pyrotechnic display accompanied by music, I am especially grateful for the all of the behind the scenes work that takes place. From the fireworks permitting, insurance coverage, site surveys, communication with multiple agencies, and site clean-up, Fireworks America continues to exceed out expectations.

I would also like to commend Jose Marquez, who has been the operator of the display for the past several years. Jose goes out of his way to make sure things are done right and always makes himself available if or when we have any questions.

Thank you and the entire Fireworks America staff for your continued commitment to excellence because without fireworks, the 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular would seem empty.

Started by an investment group of pyrotechnicians, Fireworks America is unique in the industry for employee ownership. Centuries of pyrotechnic experience is represented through our ownership group. We desired one thing above all others: Quality. No other company was able to meet our demands of quality products, quality equipment and quality service that we wanted to provide.

Quality Products because we love fireworks and know the good ones, and while you may not know their names we know you will respond to them on an emotional level - ‘Wow, I've never seen anything like that’;

Quality Equipment because we use it day in and day out, having performed thousands of displays, and built and maintained to the most stringent standards in the world, and it adds to the safety of your display;

Quality Service for our clients and our shooters because we expect no less for ourselves. Chances are when you call Fireworks America you are speaking with one of the owners who can make a decision and solve your problem. Chances are the pyrotechnician on your site is a shareholder that cares about providing the safest display possible while leaving you a very satisfied customer.

Our friendly staff at Fireworks America would be pleased to work with you to organize a fireworks display to enhance special events such as:

  • Large fireworks displays synchronized with radio simulcast
  • Special Events - sporting events, rodeos, parades, concerts
  • Weddings & Anniversaries
  • Indoor or outdoor fireworks for conventions
  • Set pieces in which pyrotechnics are used to display logos, names or text
  • Movie, television and theatrical special effects
  • Private parties
  • You name it...we've got the pyro for you!


You have the right to ask a potential fireworks company who is going to produce your show. After all, the safety of the public, the prestige of your organization and the enjoyment of your public rests with this individual. How long has this individual held a valid Pyrotechnician's license, how many shows have they done, how large they were, have they ever had his license suspended or revoked, have there been injuries related to their shows? We believe these, and other questions, are pertinent and should be answered by any prospective fireworks company. We are proud of our Pyrotechnicians and are happy to provide information on any Pyrotechnician selected to produce your show.

Fireworks America was formed by key Pyrotechnicians from other fireworks companies who were dissatisfied with the degree of professionalism exhibited by those companies. We believe we have the most experienced and dedicated Pyrotechnicians in the industry. We are prepared to submit the resume of the Pyrotechnician who will be responsible for producing your show, before you sign with us. Here's the difference. When you sign with us, the average Fireworks America Pyrotechnician will have been a licensed professional for over 10 years, been responsible for producing in excess of 100 firework shows, might well be an owner of the Company and committed to providing you with the highest quality fireworks show. We are proud of our Pyrotechnicians, because they are the best! Don't take chances with anything less.
