Steph’s Insight: “As an RV lover, I’ve learned that safety should always be a top priority, even during holiday celebrations.”
Exploring Safe Firework Alternatives
1. Glow Stick Extravaganza
Why not light up the night with a glow stick display? These colorful sticks are not only safe but also add a mesmerizing glow to your campsite. You can create glow stick patterns, wear them as accessories, or even toss them around like glow-in-the-dark confetti.
Steph’s Tip: “Glow sticks are a hit with kids and adults alike – plus, no cleanup required!”

Steph’s Tip: “Sparklers are like mini fireworks without the noise – perfect for family-friendly celebrations.”
