Fireworks stands are popping up around KOTA Territory! Starting Friday, vendors can legally sell fireworks.Sales of fireworks have been down in previous years but with the abundance of moisture in the past few months, vendors are hoping that translates to more sales.
Mark Lantis, Manager of Lantis Fireworks in Piedmont, says he has high expectations for this years celebration, “Today, already we are up about 20% of what we where this day last year. Our inquiries are up probably 50%. We are very optimistic with the wet weather and low fire danger, we're very optimistic for a good year this year” said Lantis.State law prohibits vendors from selling fireworks beyond July 5th, but customers may launch their fireworks through July 6th.
