What's that smell?

Hello everyone, long time no see!
I got a question: At the Hawai'i Volcano National Park, at the sulfur banks near the steam vents, I noticed a distinct smell of fireworks and I was wondering (well still am wondering, 3 years later :), what produces that smell? I know H2S has that rotten egg smell, but it wasn't like that at all.
Was it the SO2 maybe?
Thanks a bunch.
