Fireworks Bill Vetoed By Governor Dayton

By | Fireworks Blog | No Comments

At the zero hour of passing a bill that would legalize aerial fireworks in Minnesota, Governor Dayton pull out his veto pen and struck down the law. In a move that has many Minnesota fireworks fans in an uproar, there are many unanswered question on the motivation of this move. While many point to key backers, supporters, and union delegates, one can only wonder how a democrat who should love the additional tax revenues that these types of fireworks would bring to the state could possibly have overturned the bill.

His claimed position that fireworks injuries from aerial fireworks are what motivated him is simply stunning. Independent  studies have shown that anyone interested in using “illegal” fireworks in Minnesota simply drive across the state line to either Wisconsin or North and South Dakota to get the items they desire. While there are supposed fines in the law books for possessing or using these types of explosive or aerial fireworks, it is abundantly clear that the harshest penalty most violators face is the loss of their items.

Additionally, we lose an estimated $1.2 million dollars in sales tax revenues to these bordering states, with essentially no decrease In the availability or use within the borders of Minnesota. This has led many constituents to wonder if Dayton is getting kickbacks or campaign donations from out-of-state fireworks retailors; the largest advocates against legalizing their sale in Minnesota because of the huge influx of income the current laws provide.

And then there are the facts about fireworks injuries in the first place. Governor Dayton cited “31 fireworks injuries in Minnesota in 2011”, but neglected to mention that 29 of these were caused by ordinary sparklers. Let’s face it, folks, sparklers are the only item that burns at 1200 degrees that you hand to a toddler. The idea that something that detonates 50 feet in the air is somehow more dangerous than that is simply mind-boggling.

If you feel the same way about Minnesota fireworks laws that most Minnesotans do, please contact Governor Dayton and let your opinion be heard. You can contact him through his website here: http://mn.gov/governor/contact-us/form/

Together, we can bring some common sense to the state and some much needed sales tax revenue without needing to up the tax rates.

Independence Day – 4th of July Fireworks

By | Fireworks Holidays | No Comments

As we all know, fireworks on the 4th of July, also known as the Independence Day, are a national tradition. In every city and every town from coast to coast, people enjoy fireworks on this special day. We are celebrating the historic moment in which our nation adopted the Declaration of Independence as a National Charter, and the day we became free from the rule and tax of England. This day was July 4th, 1776, and was immediately commemorated as a National holiday. But there is another historic reason that we celebrate the birth of our nation with fireworks specifically.

In a letter to his wife, Abigail, the future President John Adams predicted that “The day will be memorable epocha in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations, as the great Anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp, shews, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations (fireworks), from one end of the continent to the other, from this time forward forever”. Ever since this prediction on July 3rd, 1776, America has celebrated Independence Day with large fireworks shows, both publicly and privately.

Now you can enhance your 4th of July celebration in Minnesota! Renaissance Fireworks is the largest retailer of fireworks in Minnesota, and we have been sharing in the 4th of July for over eight years. We have complete fireworks assortments specifically put together to enrich your July 4th experience.

Wedding Fireworks

A developing trend in today’s wedding market is the use of wedding sparklers and sky lanterns to enhance the special experience for the bride, groom, and guests. Many modern weddings feature wedding sparkler sendoff lines, where the bride and groom exit through a stunning path of sparkling magic. Other creative uses for sparklers on your wedding day are bouquets of sparklers on the reception tables, remarkable cake-top entrance effects, and unique photographic opportunities for the bride, groom, and guests to pose and do interesting scenarios with the wedding sparklers.

Sky lanterns are also an excellent way to involve everyone at the wedding in the bride and groom’s celebration. Each guest can light their own sky lantern, and then release them in unison at dusk for a spectacular sky display of love for the happy couple. Another common use of sky lanterns is for the couple to release them together during their wedding ceremony.

Party poppers are one of the most common items you will find at any celebration. Guests can really get into the moment by letting the bride and groom know just how excited and happy they are on their big day. Wedding party poppers take things one step further by packing the poppers in elegant champagne bottle-shaped housings. These wedding poppers are a classy way to spice up any type of wedding, and everyone who attends will enjoy the party even more. Whether it’s wedding sparklers or sky lanterns, fireworks are a sure way to enhance your wedding.
