2018 Early Arrivals

Each of these are available for immediate distribution:
Our new Color Saturn Missile Battery delivers 750 shots of whistling missiles with green and red tails to reports.
Bold City delivers 6 bursts of 5 shots, featuring angled, sea-blue comets and gold, strobing mines to aerial breaks of golden strobe with colorful stars that alternate between green and red on each row. The final shots include delay-crackling mines to gold strobe with green and red stars.
Full Bore is a 4-pack of powerful 5-ball Roman candles with assorted effects:

Early Spring 2018 Arrivals
The factories have been busy over these first few months of 2018, working to complete the remaining 2018 items. They have now completed production for the following fireworks that are expected to arrive in late March or early April:

Late Spring 2018 Arrivals
Firework production pauses every year during the Chinese New Year as the entire nation attends month-long celebrations and festivals. In 2018, these celebrations run from February 8th through March 2nd. After the celebrations are over, focus will shift back to fireworks production. We expect the last of our new-for-2018 items to be available by late April or early May. They should arrive in plenty of time to support the Memorial Day and 4th of July sales seasons.
Morning Glory Sparklers, a traditional favorite, features multicolor sparks and effects.
Blast Crackers are single-light firecrackers from the The Great American Fireworks Co. that come in packs of 100.
These classic bottle rockets soar through the air and deliver a satisfying pop.
