Where to buy fireworks?
« on: September 25, 2017, 05:28:45 AM »
Are they even sold in China anymore? Places around here that used to start displaying boxes big and small and crackers and sparklers around festival times these days put up sprays of flowers. (And actually, this year that road has been dug up and fenced off so I don't even see the flowers.)

Is it still possible to buy fireworks on the street?
There is little in history to support the proposition that China was indeed the centre of the Asian universe commanding deference among less civilised states around its periphery...

There's a fallback location to get firecrackers.  A lot of temples have them.  Ask some Chinese friends what's up with the lack of random vendors selling them.
I'm pro-cloning and we vote!

"Riverfire" was held here in Brisbane on Saturday night. I have never seen so many Asian folks out early to get a good vantage point! bjbjbjbjbj  A spectacular fireworks display goes for half an hour on the Brisbane river. This is accompanied by loud music. The Casino, being right beside the river, was inundated. bibibibibi I thought that I had been transported to China. ahahahahah I left "the den" early and went home and watched it on TV.
To keep on topic (sort of) I think the city arranges this display in order to prevent the Chinese folks buying fireworks and setting them off all over Brisbane! bibibibibi I don't think they can buy any fireworks here and take them back to China, so that would probably rule out Brisbane. ahahahahah
