Since I'd never tried fireworks photography before, I wasn't quite sure what to do---and I didn't bother reading up before I went. So based on a little advice from Javal last week, I used a tripod, manual focus (guessing at the "hyperfocal" point), and manual exposure. F-stops were from f/10 on up, and exposures were from 1 to 30 seconds. I used the mirror lock-up feature of the hacked 300D firmware, but still wished I had brought my homebrew remote shutter release.
I came up with a few decent shots. I shot "RAW", and the photos are unprocessed besides being converted to jpeg with default parameters and a 50% size reduction.
