Fireworks and pyrotechnic excitement in paradise

Hawaii Office

The inhabitants of the Hawaiian Islands have a long history of using fire for ceremonies and special occasions, often in a ceremony known as the ōahi. Pyro Spectaculars by Souza is proud to pay homage to this history and help continue the tradition. We’ve been producing shows in Hawaii for decades and have the technical expertise and artistry to highlight the islands’ incredible natural beauty with the perfect fireworks show.

We produce a variety of different show types on the islands, often using low-level fireworks and proximate pyrotechnics to bring audiences in close while dealing with complex spatial concerns. Our experts can find a way to produce a show in even the tightest of spaces. Whether it’s up close and personal with cakes, candles, and mines—or massive aerial displays shot from a barge—Pyro Spectaculars can achieve it.

With great beauty comes great responsibility. That’s why we take immense pride in ensuring that all of our shows comply with the strictest environmental standards. We work closely with regulatory authorities to make sure that the show is not only exciting and enjoyable, but environmentally responsible.

In 2016, we’re finishing construction on a fleet of fireworks barges, custom-built to allow us one more way to excite crowds in Hawaii. The fleet, named Makana Ke Ahi (I, II, and III) “Gift of the fire,” will be launched and blessed in traditional Hawaiian style. We’re extremely excited about this addition to our pyrotechnic arsenal—and its historic significance—intertwining two important Hawaiian cultural traditions.
