New record for largest aerial firework

There’s a new Guinness World Record for the Largest Aerial Firework, and it’s pretty cool to watch.  It weighed over a ton and was launched into the air Saturday night at the Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival in Colorado.

The shell was 62 inches, and weighed 2,797 pounds, and it was shot 2,200 feet into the air.  It beat the previous record of 2,397 pounds that was set in the United Arab Emirates in 2018.  Check it out!
