Fireworks are rapidly becoming a YEAR-ROUND business… and we’re expecting STRONG demand this fall thanks to COVID-19.

With a second wave of COVID-19 on the horizon, people are already looking for new and exciting things to do closer to home.  As we approach fall, with cooler temperatures on the horizon, many summer hobbies and recreational options will come to a close… making backyard fireworks a go-to weekend event!

Launch Your Profits with fireworks this fall!  Fireworks are the perfect high-impulse, high-margin items to bolster your bottom line as we head into the tail-end of 2020.

Here are a few upcoming key dates as we approach fall:

Skip the turkey and pass the FIREWORKS!  With COVID-19, many traditional family events will be scaled back or cancelled, leading to new traditions which will undoubtedly include the backyard.  And no backyard celebration is complete without fireworks as a “finale” to the evening!

Who wouldn’t want to blast away the ghouls and goblins with fireworks on Halloween?!  While Halloween fireworks are most popular in British Columbia and Alberta, purchases continue to expand across Canada. This year, we foresee backyard Halloween parties being all-the-rage, as parents elect to keep their children home instead of heading out for Trick-or-Treating.

Guy Fawkes Day is a popular annual tradition in the United Kingdom, which commemorates the downfall of The Gunpowder Plot of 1605. The Gunpowder Plot was lead by a group of Catholic restorationists, aimed at displacing the existing Protestant rule, by destroying the House of Parliament with explosives. Guy Fawkes himself, was arrested before the plan could be successfully executed.

Guy Fawkes Day is largely celebrated in some parts of British Columbia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Many families in these areas celebrate Guy Fawkes by igniting fireworks and gathering around bonfires in their backyards. A newer name for the holiday is known as “Bonfire Night.”

Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights.  It symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”.  This is celebrated with a variety of rituals, which usually depend, in large part, on one’s location and religion, but typically center around the lighting of candles, electric lights, and fireworks.

If Diwali is a popular celebration within your community, be sure to double-check your fireworks inventory – especially fountains and novelties – before the celebrations begin!
