Color smoke balls are novelty fireworks balls made of clay, featuring billowing smoke when lighted. They come in various sizes, all producing smoke in large quantities. These family-friendly fireworks come in a variety of colors and styles with something to please and captivate everyone.
Unlike some other fireworks, smoke balls are not only daylight-friendly, but they are popular to use during daylight events. It is easier for spectators to enjoy the intriguing smoke effects while there is still plenty of light, making smoke balls a fantastic way to get everyone ready for lights in the sky later.
Japan first used a basic form of the smoke bomb, the precursor to the smoke ball, in the 13th century. In 1848, Robert Yale created the modern smoke bombs, or smoke balls, we all know and love. He took the original concept and modified the formula to produce more billowing smoke for a longer time per each smoke ball.
