Plenty of people opt to stay home on the Fourth of July and shoot their own fireworks. Before you buy fireworks, make sure they are legal in your area.
Joe’s Fireworks in Theodore on Highway 90 told FOX10 News this is the busiest day of the year. They are even running low on the most popular items.
However, they said use caution when dealing with fireworks.
“Parent supervision is the biggest thing. I know a lot of parents want them to be out and about, but they really need to be there watching and making sure they are being safe and the parents are being safe,” said Tammy Desporte with Joe’s.
They will be open until at least 10 p.m. on July 4 and 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 5.
It’s also a good idea to wear eye protection and keep at a safe distance, and be sure you have a bucket of water or garden hose handy in case of fire.
