Hell yes. That's what Perkins looked like last night too. We had a huge fireworks show at my parent's house and houses all over the neighborhood as just as big or bigger shows. The artillery shells you can buy these days are amazing.

Yea, and it is easy to go overboard. I have to admit, it was pretty hard for me not to go off a car payment at the firecracker stand this year.

We may or may not have tied a single fuse line to a dozen or so sets of those multiple shot boxes for the finale at my brothers house in Tuttle... lol. It was literally a full minute of constant fireworks. Only one went rogue and started shooting sideways, the rest were flawless. :D

Yep. It’s surprising how much better a show you can put on with extra fuse and a hot glue gun

Hot glue gun? Well that would have really helped! lol. I just put knots on the main fuse and then tightened the firework fuse inside the knots.

Just a drip of hot glue. You can control how long the delay in between fireworks. Close together on artillery shells, further apart on the boxes of whatever.
make the initial fuse long so you will have time to go sit down and watch.
Lay the fuse out long. Go in about 6 inches. Drip hot glue and fireworks fuse. After that if it’s a multi shot box leave a couple inches before the next depending on how fast your fuse is

Stashing that knowledge away for next year. Does the glue slow the fuse any or does the fuse burn the same rate regardless? Next year I definitely think we'll space them out because this time we had multiple groups of 4 all tied the same point on the fuse. Spreading them out probably wouldn't be a terrible idea, plus that might keep them from getting knocked over.

Just cut some off and experiment. See how much and how little glue will bother the fuse. Also see how fast it is. You can also extend the fireworks fuse with it.

Lay the fuse out straight. Pretend it’s a board you are going to cut. You measure and mark it. Instead of cutting in a spot, you glue fuse. Leave about 6 inches from where you light it to your first fireworks fuse is glued. That way you have plenty of time to sit down and get comfortable while you watch the show
