This photo gallery is a showcase of pictures of fireworks, the centuries old favorite way to cap a celebration and go out with a bang. If you really consider what a firework is, it’s quite an amazing thing. A controlled explosion whose chemistry is perfected to detonate in desired patterns and colors, when lit with a fuse. It’s art with fire. The results of this scientific wizardry are truly magical; there is no better word for it. Showers of colorful lights taking off in all directions, bathing the gasping faces of the captivated crowds below with glowing blue, red, green, and yellow light. 

Today we are able to take fireworks to new heights, elaborate spectacles that are impossible to ignore. The great New Years Eve displays over Sydney, Paris, and Dubai; international firework festivals in Japan, South Korea, and Montreal; The Beijing Olympics. Fireworks have endured as staples at the largest celebrations around the world. It is hard to top painting the night sky with enormous fireballs. It is like man made lightning, or perhaps even better, like dragon’s breath. 

This photo gallery showcases pictures of various firework displays from our users around the world. To share your own pictures of firework, don’t forget to tag them with #fireworks.
