Looking for a slightly less fiery alternative to light up your celebrations? Try these five safer and just as spectacular alternatives to traditional fireworks. The environment, dry grass, nervous types, pets and wildlife will thank you!
Glow in the Dark Party
Host a glow in the dark party and watch your guests light up the night! Stock up on glow sticks, glow in the dark body paint, electric lanterns and balloons. If you really want to up the ante, get yourself some black lights and everything will really glow, including some interesting party foods....
Laser Tag Party
Employ a laser tag company like Games 2 U
to help you throw an epic laser tag event guaranteed to brighten the skies and make your event memorable (and sweaty). Host an event in your back yard or get the community involved and set up in a park. Follow up with cold drinks & snacks by electric candlelight .
Gas Fire Pit Hotdogs & Marshmallow Roast
Fire up a gas fire pit, hang up some patio lanterns and invite friends and family over for a spark-free weenie and marshmallow roast. Not fortunate enough to have a gas fire pit? Get yourself on the guest list of someone who does!
Mother Nature's been lighting up the skies way longer than we have and she's really, really good at it. Head to your favourite observation point or beach with lawn chairs, blankets and snacks and let her put on the show. Show your appreciation by taking any litter home with you.
have seen this one coming on the heels of the sunset party... Really, you could do both! If the weather's on your side, gather your nearest and dearest and spend some time looking up at the stars. Play games to see who can name the most constellations, wish on falling stars and just enjoy time together outside. Younger ones allowed to stay up late for a little stargazing will be extra appreciative and you'll likely create more lasting memories than an evening of fireworks!
