Te Rangi and his team from Ngāti Kahungunu were trained by Anthony of Firework Professionals to perform firework shows for Matariki throughout the east coast area. Matariki has become a very significant Winter Festival with the fireworks, light shows and entertainment. The symbolism of the colours of fireworks has been wound into a poetic form by Te Rangi.
Gisborne Firework Shows
For New Year Chris goes to his home town, Gisborne to fire another show for Firework Professionals. Chris and Reuben design rig and fire a tightly choreographed musical firework show on New Year’s evening.
The Gisborne Firework show at the confluence of the Taruheru and Waimata Rivers is seen from all the three bridges around, and is a night to be remembered.
Firework Professionals have also been involved in the firework shows for “Rhythm and Vines“.
Fire in the Sky
The New Year show is called “Fire in the Sky” and has been running each New Years day since 2002, sponsored by Walter Findlay Ltd, the Gisborne District Council, in association with Good Karma.
Tony and Kerry are two other locals who have trained with Firework Professionals and fire the New Year’s Eve firework show on the pier in Napier. Their background in sound and lighting gives them great skills to manage and rig a tricky show exposed to the sea wind.

“Thanks first of all for the best fireworks display I have seen off the pier. It was mind blowingly AWESOME! Massive congratulations to your team. I found at all times your team easy to work with and communication lines were always open. The way that they conducted themselves was typical to what we have come to expect out of Firework Professionals.."
