Budgets, Permits & Fees

The Show Budget

The budget of the show depends on the size, complexity, firing location, number of fireworks, types of fireworks used as well as a number of other factors. Pyro Spectaculars by Souza creates beautiful shows of all sizes, pyro calculatorpyro calculatorfrom high school homecoming games to the world’s largest fireworks show in the world, the Macy’s Fourth of July Spectacular (HL).

The show budget is all-inclusive and includes components such as materials, labor, show permits, transportation, fire service personnel, equipment fees, and sales tax. Your show producer will work with you to develop a firework show within the budgetary requirements.

Show Permits

Every show requires a permit from the local fire authority. Depending on the firing location the fire authority could be a local fire department, a county fire department, or federal agency (e.g. Bureau of Land Management, US Forestry Service, etc.). Your show producer will be responsible for obtaining the relevant permit for the jurisdiction of the firing location.pyro permitspyro permits

In addition to the fire authority permits there could be additional permits or permission required. Firing locations near airports will often need the permission of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Firing locations in protected areas such as parks or recreation areas might need a permit from their respective regulatory agency.
