You mainly see fireworks in WOW for major holidays, but I thought I would write this post while I am thinking about it. (old age and all)
I have some screenshots of different times I have been to fireworks events in WOW that were put on by players. One time it was a friend who was an engineer, another time we had a guild legendary party, etc. Instead of trying to show it with a screenshot though, here is a video I found on youtube:

After gathering all your fireworks, spread the word about your event in guild chat and/or trade. You will want everyone to gather in an open area.
Fireworks usually only stack in 5s, which takes up a lot of bag space, plus you will want multiple fireworks going off at one time. For this reason, you will need volunteers to help you lay down fireworks. I usually give a few others stacks of fireworks that don’t require launchers.
Fireworks events are always a hit, hope this list helps some of you out.
