We had long ones (that lasted around 2 minutes) – we did a trial run with regular sized ones and they didn’t last as long as we needed them to. Honestly, as long as you have a few people there in the crowd ready to help you get them lit, they should be okay!

I believe ours were 90 seconds (they arn’t the short ones that people use on the 4th, those seem to only  last like 30 seconds)

To ensure that we had time, we had our designated “lighter people” who took several and lit them all at one & passed them out to the guests who were already standing in a line. Then we walked out – and all were still lit 🙂

im working on finding sparklers too, we have a pretty short walk, but have heard the stories about them not being lit long enough for photographers to get good pics! not sure which ones to buy
