Ko Olina New Year’s Eve

Well, we had a very busy New Year’s Eve in 2011, as we produced the best fireworks show Hawaii has ever seen! The venue was Ko Olina Resort in Leeward Oahu, home of the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and the new Disney Aulani Resort. The resort tasked us with covering their 4 spectacular lagoons with fireworks from end to end, so everyone from residents, visitors and the general public could enjoy a spectacular show, no matter where they were on the property. Now, this was no easy feat as the Lagoons are just under a mile apart! But our production team put together a fantastic display that was 15 straight minutes of awesomeness.

The crowd seemed quite pleased with what they saw. You can check out some of the footage here:

The Royal Hawaiian Grand Opening

Current Affairs event planning has a great article regarding the Grand Re-Opening Gala Party for The Royal Hawaiian Hotel back in March. We at Hawaii Explosives & Pyrotechnics were honored to be a part of this prestigious event and it was a pleasure to work with Phillip Richardson, David Beahm and the staff at the resort.

Despite a bit of inclement weather, we managed to top off the evening with a high intensity fireworks display consisting of mostly pink shells. Moreover, the proceeds for this fabulous fundraiser went to The Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific, the preeminent rehabilitation hospital in Hawaii. You can find more images of the event here.
