SUMMARY: Before bringing a tripod to shoot digital fireworks photos, make sure it is ok to do so. Or, find someplace away from the crowds to take your photos.
Tripods are not always allowed during fireworks shows, especially if you are on private property or if the crowds are so large that room is tight. For safety reasons, some festival planners may disallow tripods as they could pose a safety hazard if people are close together. Thus, make sure to check first.
Or, you may want to consider other vantage points than where most people are gathering. Fireworks can be seen from a great distance, so look around for places where the crowds are not gathering yet where you can snap some nice photos.
