Melrose Takes On Texas!

Reunion Tower_5x7

On October 10th, Melrose Pyrotechnics visited the Reunion Tower in Dallas, Texas, for the 109th Red River Rivalry of the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Tasked with PyroMusical entertainment, Melrose Pyrotechnics fully exploited the sculptural nature of the Geosphere. Pyrotechnic Special FX were installed throughout the 560 foot colossus, in both radial and tangential trajectories. Digital control insured precise placement of all FX, within the musical program, and in concert with the sphere’s LED array.

Hello from Shanghai!

We are proud to announce that we recently competed and placed first in the 2014 Shanghai Jinshan International Beach Fireworks Festival!

This is the third year that the Jinshan district has held the international festival in its beach city. The festival takes place the first two Saturdays of September each year. Melrose Pyrotechnics previously placed second during the premier festival in 2012!!

So What exactly is the Shanghai Jinshan International Beach Fireworks Festival, you may be asking? China invites the top firework and pyrotechnic display companies from around the world. This year, we competed alongside the top companies from Italy, Mexico, and China. Performances were viewed by an estimated 20,000 spectators between September 6th and September 13th in which the four teams displayed theatrical “Sea Light Shows.” Fireworks were launched from the outer dam of the beach in the East China Sea. Due to the open space the beach provides and the distance from light pollution, Shanghai Jinshan Beach has become the perfect location for firework competitions.

Each year participating teams are able to choose a theme for their choreographed performances. This year, spectators were able to enjoy China’s “A Road of China,” Italy’s “A Bite of Italy,” Mexico’s “Concert Under the Stars,” and our personal favorite (as well as the judges) “Space Trip” displayed by Melrose.

Keep an eye out for more pictures and video of our performance from the festival!

Chinese New Year Video

Missed the Chinese New Year Celebration? Bring in the Year of the Horse and watch a small piece of our fireworks display from Saturday, February 1st. It was the largest Chinese New Year display in the United States and featured traditional red, gold, and silver shells. It was held in Chicago, Il and shot off a barge in Lake Michigan.  We were able to battle the freezing cold temps and ice to put on a great fireworks display for the City of Chicago and all its visitors.
