When a new round of shells is launched, wait for them to get up to the height where others have been going off, then open the shutter with the camera set on "bulb." Use a cable release so you can do so without touching the camera body to prevent movement. Close the shutter when you think you've recorded what you want. Assuming that the only source of light is the exploding fireworks, the black sky will not record in the image. As mentioned, you will generally find that exposures of several seconds will give you good coverage but you may want to try up to thirty seconds to see what happens.
Another interesting option is to shoot double exposures. Since it is night, there shouldn't be much ambient light, making this easier than it might seem. Just leave your shutter open and cover the front of the lens with something dark like a piece of black cloth or even a baseball cap. When another burst is about to go off, uncover the lens to allow it to add to the exposure already recorded. Be careful not to actually touch the lens though to avoid blurring due to vibration.
And lastly, in amongst your keepers, be prepared to get a lot of shots that don't come out quite the way you had hoped. If you are shooting digital, you should have at least some sense of how things are going by referring to the images on your camera LCD, but if you are shooting film you'll have to rely at least in part on faith. There's a lot of guesswork and trial and error involved in getting good fireworks shots. This makes sense since one of the big draws that fireworks have is their surprise factor. The shells go up and with anticipation you await what you know must come next. But no matter how much you think you know when they will go off, you will sometimes be wrong. When you least expect it, they will explode across the sky with colors and patterns that will amaze the kid in you. It's part of the thrill of the experience, and part of the challenge of photographing it.
