From site selection, to budgeting and day of event services we work with you hand-in-hand to ensure your show is of the highest caliber. Here is a brief outline of the fireworks process from the initial planning to the day of the show. Please check out our other guide on what to expect on the day of your event. 

Start Early - most of our Fourth of July customers will have us "booked" before the first of August, and certainly before the first of the year.

It all begins with the idea… You've decided that you want to have fireworks on the night of your event. Please give us a call at 888-477-PYRO to start the planning process with one of our expert show producers. We can help you best if, when you call, you've already know Who (your audience), What (the duration of your show), Where (the location), When (the date and time), Why (the occasion or the role fireworks will play), and How (what budget resources can you use to make the entire event spectacular). Your Show Producer will answer any questions you may have, and will arrange for a complimentary on-site consultation to begin the creative, collaborative and essential process to help you get the most effective and exciting show for your audience.pyro firing locationpyro firing location

  1. We will conduct a site survey.  We will conduct a site survey. Due to the nature of fireworks we need a qualified safe location to shoot the show. For a typical aerial show, the ideal location would be a wide-open field, away from buildings and people. But we have significant experience shooting on buildings, bridges, and just about anywhere else. Your show producer will help you identify the perfect location for your event and will take care of all the necessary pre-qualifications of the site.

  2. Timeline. After you've decided you want fireworks for your event you should contact Pyro Spectaculars by Souza as soon as possible. Although we are pretty good at putting together last minute spectacular events, contacting us at least a month ahead of time will ensure that we can get all the necessary permits and materials. If you would like a Fourth of July show we recommend contacting us by February of the year you would like a show. We love planning in advance and contacting us earlier will always be appreciated.

  3. Show Type. If you can dream it we can make it happen. We develop all different types of shows from Chinese New Years, to the Macy’s 4th of July Spectacular, to High School Graduations. We have a lot of tools in our firework tool belt and will work with you to determine what kind of show perfectly complements your event.

  4. Budget. Our show producers will work with you to develop a budget for your show. The budget is determined by the complexity, location and run-time of the show. We can make a spectacular show fit within your budget.

After we have figured out the location, timeline, type and budget of your show we will write a proposal discussing the specifics. Once you have carefully reviewed it, you will need to sign the enclosed agreement and send a deposit for the show.Pyro Filler 2Pyro Filler 2

  1. Proposal. The proposal will outline the core components of your show from location, budget, date, time, etc. Our proposals are unique to each event and will clearly outline what to expect for your event.

  2. Agreement. The agreement will contain all the legal information necessary to shoot the show. It will outline your responsibilities as well as Pyro Spectaculars by Souza’s responsibilities. It should be carefully reviewed and signed by an authorized person in your management structure.

  3. Deposit. We typically require a 50% deposit in advance of the show for new clients. We require payment in full by the day of the event. Depending on the show we reserve the right to change our payment and deposit requirements.

After we have received the completed agreement and the deposit we will begin the production work on your show. Depending on your event your show producer will discuss with you a wide variety of items including the following:Pyro Red LeftPyro Red Left

  1. Music Selection. Depending on your show type it might be choreographed to music. We will work with you to ensure that the music selection complements the overall theme of the show. We can accommodate most song requests, so if you have a particular selection in mind, please let your show producer know.

  2. Firework Selection. Every show is customized to the theme of the customer’s event. We will discuss with you the various effects and fireworks of your show. If you are looking for a particular effect, please let your show producer know and they will do their best to accommodate your request. Unfortunately, not all requests can be accommodated due to technical, budgetary, location or safety considerations.

  3. Security Services. Security services might be required depending on the particulars of your event. If your event requires multiple setup days or if the firing location isn’t secured, we will most likely require you to obtain the services of a private security firm. Security services are the responsibility of the client and must be addressed prior to the event.pyro cautionpyro caution

  4. Other Event Services. From staging to audio production, your show producer will discuss the various other aspects of your event. We are a full service entertainment company and can help plan or coordinate the other aspects of your event.

  5. Day of Event Services. Your show producer will discuss with you what to expect on the day of your event. They will discuss items from crew arrival time, the expected time to shoot your show, as well as give you the contact information of your pyrotechnic operator.

  6. On-Site Location Meeting. Depending on your event we might schedule an in-person meeting at the firing location of your site. The meeting could include members of the fire department, your production team, as well as representatives from your organization. This meeting will confirm details of safety, show time, and production responsibilities as well as be an opportunity to clarify any last minute details. The meeting would most likely occur 1 to 2 weeks prior to the show during normal business hours at a convenient time for all parties.

On the day of your event our team will arrive with everything they need to ensure you have a spectacular night. Our crew will set up, shoot and clean up the show. All you have to do is enjoy the show and the appreciation from your audience.
