Phantom Fireworks first burst onto the scene more than three decades ago. Today, the company lights up backyards of America from coast-to-coast with more than 1,200 permanent and temporary locations.

Much like its products, Phantom?s employees frequently take to the skies. They travel around the globe in search of the industry's latest ground and aerial displays before returning home with rockets, missiles, fountains, and aerial repeaters. From there, an extensive in-house testing program takes over, checking each item's safety before it?s sold to the public.

That testing program is just one of Phantom?s pillars of safety. The company also holds memberships with multiple pyrotechnics organizations, and it offers customers additional information about fireworks laws and history through its Fireworks University.

The northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail lies at the foot of Mount Katahdin. Beneath the mountain's silhouette, moose graze along the shorelines, and eagles roam the skies above Baxter State Park's chromatic woods. Nearby, outdoorsmen and environmental enthusiast Matt Polstein has unveiled the area's natural beauty and abundant adventure opportunities for more than 20 years through New England Outdoor Center.

During the early summer through fall, Polstein?s team leads whitewater-rafting adventures on the Penobscot River. The raucous waterway possesses a stretch that drops 70 feet per mile through a narrow, granite-walled canyon into Class V rapids with monikers such as Exterminator and Cribworks. Further excursions include trips on the Dead River and Kennebec River, as well as Family Float trips appropriate for kids as young as age 4. Come winter, Polstein rents snowmobiles so guests can zoom across the area's powdery expanses, perhaps to catch a view of the Northern Lights.

In addition to the plentiful year-round activities, New England Outdoor Center encompasses dining and lodging facilities, including cabins, green-built guesthouses, and campgrounds.

Hawg Wild Lure Co.’s employees stay involved in the world of fishing by competing in tournaments or guiding other fishermen and fisherwomen. As a result, the team stays knowledgeable about topics such as specific species’ visual ability or capacity to lip synch to Jimmy Buffet songs. They preside over shelves of soft, plastic fishing lures in a rainbow of colors with whimsical names such as watermelon pearl. Yielding catches of pike, pickerel, musky, and largemouth and smallmouth bass, the baits are designed to work in nearly any water condition. Salt is infused throughout the plastic of some units, and Shakey Head Finesse worms entice bites with a fish-attracting scent.
