I'm not sure myself :-). Maybe beginners luck.

I set up the camera on a tripod and taken a few shots prior to the firework to see how long I should expose as I was in Bulb mode and manual focus. I was using a remote shutter release cable, sitting on a chair next to the camera. Once the firework started I pushed the button between 1-3 sec depending on the display. I looked at  the live view display about 3 times in the 1/2 hour the firework went on.

All up I took 270 shots and after downloading and sorting them out I ended up with 110 photos that I kept.
