Confetti Magic has had the honour of providing confetti and streamer effects for the London New Year’s Day Parade since 2011.
The event is watched by a TV audience of over 300 million around the world, with another 500,000 lining the streets come rain or shine.
This year, as well as shots of confetti in the finale arena, we had a mobile team bringing a burst of colour to spectators along the route.
Using our brand new, portable, Hurricane Confetti Launcher we could ensure that we got the confetti to the desired locations, whilst reacting to a dynamic situation.
With bands and teams of cheerleaders ranging in numbers from 10s to 100s, we could get up close, taking into account changing wind conditions, to achieve the best shot in complete safety.
The secret to the Hurricane’s success is the CO2 back pack. Usually reserved for much bigger, floor mounted CO2 Confetti Blasters, the Hurricane uses the same high power venturi to blast a cloud of confetti from quick-load cartridges. The cartridges are fully reusable and can be filled with any combination of colours and shapes.
The Hurricane Confetti Launcher is a fantastic addition to our hire range, getting to the places that other confetti launchers cannot reach.
