Fireworks Sales In The City

Firework tents here in Lincoln opened their doors yesterday hoping to attract more business than ever.

Alongside many fourth of July firework favorites, you can expect to see some new items this year.

In his first year of selling fireworks, Jeff Laass says business is looking good.  At his hometown fireworks stand, he says people are quickly noticing the larger selection.  “We're selling traditional stuff and we're also selling some of the new stuff and people are coming in and looking for that. So, that's been exciting to see as well,” Laass says.

Many of this year's new fireworks contain more powder…which means a bigger bang.  Some fireworks, like rockets with sticks, are still illegal in Nebraska.
