Fireworks are now on Sale for New Years


With the New Year right around the corner, local fireworks stands are opening up and hoping for a big season after a disappointing Fourth of July.

Aisles are filled to the brim and some excited customers are getting ready to ring in the New Year.

“What are you doing here today? Shopping for fireworks,” Annabelle Fischer, five years old says.

With a slow fourth of July, this fireworks stand hopes you’ll start your New Years off with a bang.

“I’m just excited for people to basically get the 4th of July back on New Year’s Eve,” Jordan Hauck, Big Top Fireworks owner says.

Due to a severe summer drought, there was a multi-county fireworks ban across the state, and stands like Big Top suffered from slow summer sales.

But Hauck says, lighting off fireworks this New Year’s is a chance for families to spend time together.

“It gave people another way to celebrate New Year’s, just skip the bar, and do it at home with fireworks, and hangout with your kids.” Hauck says.

Kids like Annabelle, who says she can’t wait to light up the sky this weekend.

“I love fireworks,” Fischer says.

And Hauck says even with the freezing temperatures, people can still enjoy fireworks over the holiday.

“In winter, it’s colder, so you can light one thing and watch it go off over and over and over again rather than light one thing off at a time,” Hauck says.

To limit your time outside but there are some things that are even better in the cold.

“You get more noise because it echoes more, and the fireworks all just shoot off so much better in the wintertime, because the air is so much thinner.” Carson Breuer, Big Top Fireworks says.

And fill their holiday weekend with a little bit of color.

“It’s a great way to ring in the New Year, what’s better than kicking back and shooting off a few fireworks in the New Year,” Breuer says.

Giving North Dakotans the perfect excuse to celebrate.

Local fireworks stands will be open through January 1st.
