Looking to but some fireworks, a little more powerful than sparklers :blowup: , I live in PA. and I believe it is illegal to sell to people in PA. unless you go out of state. Any idea where to look in MD. or NJ. along the interstate.

IF you can get some local official to sign off on it you can purchase Class C bottllerocks, firecrakers, rockets and up to some pretty sizable cakes and mortars. The big $40+ cakes are enormous.

That place is up by Meshoppen which is near Tunkhannock, there is others. If you happen to have friend from out of state they don't need a permit to purchase. FYI the fireworks at that place are ridiculously cheap. Just as one example we were getting those flare type sparklers for about $10 for a couple thousand of them. They were selling them on the road for about $1 per box of 6. :roll: Gross of the cheap bottle rockets were like $5 or $6. Here's a cool idea for a case of bottle rockets I want to try.

Donnora's would have the same stuff as they would in any state and there are other places scattered across the state. You just can't buy them as PA resident without permit. Obtaining the permit is going to depend on the local ordinances, you only need someone with an official capacity to sign it. Fire Chief, Mayor, Police Chief... Have no doubt, Class C can put up some big displays. You can get mortars about 2 inches across. They are slightly smaller boom than a 1/4 stick aerial bomb, probably more like a 1/8 stick.

This is Class C, around the 6 minute mark about $4 a shot:
