Scattering Ashes by Fireworks

Ashes can be scattered by exploding fireworks.

These are special fireworks displays that contain a number of fireworks specially modified to incorporate cremated remains.

This nighttime display might be the perfect memorial and the way to say goodbye.

Restrictions on firework displays will apply. Some areas, such as national parks in the United States, require a scattering permit and probably will prohibit fireworks. Permission should be sought if scattering ashes by fireworks over areas where people gather, such as baseball stadiums. Cremated remains can be scattered by fireworks over private property with the owner's permission. Check with local authorities to ensure that your fireworks display is legal.
