NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D. (KTIV) -
If you are looking to add some sparkle to your 4th of July festivities, you still have a few hours to buy fireworks to wow your guests.
Many fireworks stores opened early Wednesday morning for shoppers looking for the perfect pop.
Customers at Zorts Fireworks in North Sioux City, S.D. fill their shopping carts with their favorites.
Many are reloading their supply, while others are stocking up for Wednesday night.
"My brother and I always come buy them. We have a bunch of kids come up and they light them for us. And we just sit back and watch. We have usually 50 to 60 people come out. And we do hot dogs and hamburgers and we have a great time," said Dave Chase.
"It's an American tradition. Most of the people in here, their parents have done it, their grandparents have done it. That's what you do, you have your family time together, your picnics, and it's fun. We sell a lot of fun," said Dave Barber, Zort's Owner.
Barber says July 4th is their busiest day.
They'll stay open until midnight for customers.
And just a reminder, most fireworks are illegal in Iowa.
You are allowed to use sparklers, snakes, and snaps.
If you're caught with any other kinds of fireworks in Iowa, you could face a fine up to $100 and even jail time.
