Here are five fun facts about fireworks to get you excited for the event:

  1. The record for the largest firework display consisted of 66,326 fireworks and was achieved in Portugal in 2006. (That’s A LOT of fireworks!)
  2. The first fireworks were made in China, around 2,000 years ago!
  3. The word for firework in Japanese, ‘hanabi’, means ‘fire-flower’.
  4. It is estimated that more than 14,000 fireworks displays light up U.S. skies each 4th of July.
  5. Please remember that any fireworks that explode or fly in the air are illegal. The personal use of fireworks in our neighborhoods has prompted the Coral Springs Police Department to take a firmer stance in addressing illegal fireworks. Be safe and have fun!

Looking forward to this fun event. Hope to see you all there!
