Browsing a fireworks retailer's website or visiting its store can make you aware of just how many different types of fireworks are on the market. While your budget and the type of event that you're celebrating will partially dictate how you shop for fireworks, it's always a good idea to peruse the available choices to find something that you haven't previously tried. One variety that you'll commonly come across is parachute fireworks. This product explodes in the air like most conventional fireworks, but then releases a small parachute and a toy — typically, a plastic toy soldier that is attached to the parachute. Here are three reasons to buy parachute fireworks.
They Work Well In The Daytime
Most fireworks are best to shoot at night, but there are some that are also suitable to shoot during the day. Parachute fireworks fall into the latter category, making them a good choice for families with children who aren't able to stay up too late. In the daytime, it will be easy for your children to see the parachute and toy release into the air and then slowly descend toward the ground, and they'll have fun chasing after it. Tracking the flight of the parachute is obviously something that is difficult at night.
They Provide Gifts
You could argue that attending a fireworks show is a gift in itself, but it's always nice to have some type of keepsake available for the children in attendance. This is especially true if you're planning to have a few families over when you shoot off some fireworks. Parachute fireworks lend themselves well to this idea. Instead of going home empty-handed, all of the children in attendance will be able to take home a soldier and parachute toy. This is a gift that they can enjoy repeatedly after the fireworks show is over — for example, by throwing it off a second-story deck and watching it slowly float to the ground.
They Last A While
Another thing that you may find appealing about parachute fireworks is that they last longer than conventional fireworks. While there's no arguing that the sounds and sights of conventional fireworks are exciting, they're over fairly quickly. Parachute fireworks, meanwhile, explode quickly but then offer entertainment in the form of the parachute falling for several more seconds. If you don't have a large fireworks budget and you want your show to last as long as possible, parachute fireworks can be a good product to buy.
