The 4th of July is always a fun filled event with picnics, outdoor activities, and of course an extra long weekend off from work. One of the most popular ways to celebrate this summer event is with fireworks. Across the US, there will be thousands of elaborate firework displays that will light up the night’s sky and be enjoyed by countless bedazzled spectators.

Find the best fireworks display near you and be sure to attend. Or better yet, try to get a job working at it. The pyrotechnics industry is a fantastic place to find short term work. There are eager and enthusiastic explosive lovers working hard behind the scenes to design the shows, shoot the fireworks, and ensure everyone’s safety.

The pyrotechnic industry is a multi-million dollar niche that booms during big events like the 4th of July, New Year’s, the Super Bowl, and other festivities. It would probably be an even bigger industry, except that it is very highly regulated.
