Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the Frequently Asked Questions are shown below.
How much will a fireworks display cost?
The cost of a fireworks display can vary greatly and it depends on many factors including the location of the display. A rooftop display utilizes product that is different from product for an indoor arena or an outdoor display.
Jays Pyrotechnics will discuss the location and type of display you want for your event and work within your budget and needs to produce a fireworks display that will make your event a success.
How long will the show last?
Jays Pyrotechnics provides the longest, fullest, most exciting display possible to fit your budget and expectations. It is more important that a fireworks display provide a well-paced, full display with an exciting opening and ending and memorable highlights than a display that lasts for a specific time, but is boring because the shells must be spaced too far apart to fill time.
Will the show have music or not?
Jays Pyrotechnics can produce displays that are fully choreographed to music (pyro-musical) for your special event. The requirements for a pyro-musical display, however, are different. Adequate sound systems must be provided by the client. Planning and choreography for a pyro-musical is more extensive than for a display without music.
For many displays, just the sound of the shells launching and the spectacular sky display is all the audience needs or just playing music during the event can provide an extra level of enjoyment for the audience without the need for a full pyro-musical.
Can we request specific colors or effects?
Yes. Jays Pyrotechnics carries a large selection of shell sizes, colors, and effects and if you are looking for something special, this can be designed into your show.
What is your safety record and are you licensed?
Jays Pyrotechnics is fully licensed and insured for indoor and outdoor venues. Each display is under the supervision of a licensed pyrotechnic operator who will be present onsite from the beginning to the ending of the display.
The pyrotechnician and trained assistants will set up, shoot, tear down, and clean up. Jays Pyrotechnics has an unblemished safety record and will not shoot a fireworks display if there’s any question about safe firing. All national regulations and our own experiences are followed when planning a fireworks display and the safety of the audience and crew are the first and most important aspects of the planning.
What am I responsible for providing? Do I need permits for the display?
We will need some of your time to discuss the fireworks display to find out your needs and expectations and to finalize details before the display. Depending on the venue, various permits are required, but Jays has extensive experience working with regulators and will obtain the required permits.
Jays will set up, shoot, and tear down the display, as well as clean up the shoot site. The pyrotechnician and assistants will maintain security at the immediate firing site. Crowd control and access to the firing site is the responsibility of the sponsor, but Jays Pyrotechnics can provide expert experience to advise you in what is needed.
