A Fireworks Glossary

"Glossary of Fireworks Terms"
The Fireworks Alliance

Do you lie awake nights, worried that you may be asked to explain the difference between a silver salute and an ash can? Are you embarrassed to admit that you don't know what a tourbillion is?

Probably not.

On the other hand, you might like to learn a little about fireworks whose name you know - and maybe learn what the displays you've seen are called. That's where this glossary comes in.

The Fireworks Alliance put together a pretty good list of fireworks terms, from Aerial to Willow: with a short description of each term. And, sometimes, a little history: like the banning of ash cans in the sixties.
