Juy 1, 2023 – Incorporated in 1977, Phantom Fireworks is one of nation’s largest importers, distributors, and retailers of consumer fireworks. Bruce J. Zoldan, President, CEO, and Board Chairman of Phantom Fireworks, and Rori H. Zoldan, Vice President of Phantom Fireworks, along with their team, exhibit strong dedication to consumer fireworks safety and are committed to the Phantom Fireworks experience.
Previously, Ohio only allowed trick or novelty fireworks, such as sparklers and poppers, to be used within the state. Consumer fireworks (also known as 1.4G), such as firecrackers and bottle rockets, were illegal to use in Ohio, and if purchased within the state, were required to be taken out of the state within 48 hours of purchase. However, with the passing of amendments to Ohio Revised Code (R.C.) § 3743.45 and new Ohio Fire Code (OFC) § 1301:7-7-56(Z)(5626) in July 2022, Ohioans can now discharge 1.4G fireworks in the state on certain days from 4 p.m. until 11 p.m. The dates include July 3, 4, and 5, and the Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays immediately preceding and following July 4; Labor Day weekend (1st Monday in September and the Saturday and Sunday immediately preceding that Monday); Diwali; New Year’s Eve (4 p.m.-11:59 p.m.); New Year’s Day (12 a.m.-1 a.m.); Chinese New Year; Cinco de Mayo (May 5); Memorial Day weekend (last Monday in May and the Saturday and Sunday immediately preceding that Monday); and Juneteenth (June 19).
Regardless of the occasion, Phantom Fireworks brings extra excitement to each celebration in a careful and controlled manner for memories that will last a lifetime. With over 75 permanent showrooms across America, Phantom Fireworks offers an incredibly wide array of fireworks, novelties, and celebration products for any special event as well as an extensive line of private label products sold under the trade name Phantom, such as Wolfpack, Silver Salute, and the Grucci Collection from Bellport, New York; and Phantom Fireworks only continues to grow.
