Three firework records you should know for Bonfire Night

Ho Chi Minh City At Night

Bonfire Night is upon us and here are three incredible firework records that you can impress your friends with tonight.

The get you in that Bonfire Night spirit we have scoured the web to bring five of the most interesting firework world records:

Largest firework display ever

Dubai don't do things by halves, so it isn't surprising that they hold the record for the most fireworks lit during a single display.

According to the Guinness World Records, Dubai used over 500,000 fireworks in the 2014 New Year celebrations that lasted only 6 minutes!

The display apparently covered a stretch of Dubai coastline measuring 58 miles. We dread to think how much that cost to co-ordinate!

Largest rocket of all time

The largest firework rocket ever constructed was made in Portugal by Associacao Nacional de Empresas de Produtos Explosivos.

It weighed a total of 13.4kg and was launched at the 12th International Symposium on fireworks in Portugal's second largest city, Oporto.

Largest Catherine Wheel of all time

The largest Catherine wheel ever made measured exactly 32.044 metres in diameter and was built by Lily Fireworks Factory in Malta on 18 June 2011.

After being ignited the free-standing structure managed to complete four revolutions from the thrust of its in-built rockets.
