A Mid-Missouri Staple since 1987


Started by Columbia native John Bechtold, Spirit of ’76 has grown from a seasonal retail tent to one of the largest wholesalers of consumer fireworks. Despite great success, we have always maintained a local retail operation to service the fireworks needs of Mid-Missouri. From wedding sparklers to graduation fireworks, we have what you need to light up the sky in style. We put our 30+ years of experience into action, selecting only the best fireworks to carry in our store and online. 
We offer curbside and in store pickup when you order online
