My friend did a sparkler exit on the beach and it was Really pretty for photos. The hardest part is getting it all organized right. The sparklers run out quickly, so there was like 10 of us in charge of trying to quickly light them- everyone got 2 so that if one was about to extinguish they could light the 2nd- and then you kind of had to be quick. With all of that aside, as long as you make sure you caculate time and such, it should be wonderful!

You’re exactly right, having the right length of sparklers is key for the exit and of course always make sure the venue is cool with them. Most are. We recomend using large sparklers such as 20 inch or 36 inch sparklers. If you’re planning on making words using time lapsed photography then the 36 inch sparklers are ideal as they last about 4 minutes. Also sparklers are easiest lit off of other sparklers but you still need to ignite the first ones with lighters. We recomend the grill type lighters as the ignite sparklers the quickest. Also keep a few buckets with water to dispose of the sparklers after you are done.

I’m sure i missed something so check out our faq for more tips.
