Fireworks Stands Still Busy Despite Bans

Fireworks Stands Still Busy Despite Bans
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Fourth of July brings excitement to kids and adults alike.

But, as temperatures rise and dry conditions increase, so does the threat of fires. While there's been numerous firework bans throughout KELOLAND, Hot Shot Fireworks Owner Shelly Raderschadt says it hasn't been a problem when it comes to sales.

"People are coming out by the droves, if you just use common sense and safety precautions, you should have a great time," Raderschadt said.

While there's no fireworks ban in Minnehaha County, people are still going the extra mile to make sure things don't get out of hand.

While Raderschadt encourages people to celebrate the fourth by buying and shooting off home fireworks, she also wants to remind people that there are many things you can do to have a fun yet safe holiday.

"One is to have a bucket of water by where you're shooting or a garden hose. We like to shoot off our shells in an old tire just to keep the fireworks confined and probably just using common sense," Raderschadt said.

Whether you plan on shooting off your own fireworks or not, you're urged to be aware of your surroundings and make sure your celebration goes off with a bang.
