Fireworks sales exceed expectations

Posted: Updated:
Firework sales have now come to an end in Scotts Bluff County, and vendors say they have had one of the best years.

Discount fireworks has been in the community for years, providing locals July fourth essentials.

Owner Eric Wilcox says at the end of every season, they see which products customers enjoyed most. He says the floating lanterns were most popular this year. Wilcox also says that they will start preparing for next year in two weeks.

"We had a great year compared to other years," says Wilcox. "It was up with the weather, I think it was a huge factor. When it's green out, people are willing to come in and buy fireworks and now worry about the dry conditions that we had a couple of years ago."

Wilcox says that many of the leftover fireworks will be used for new years.
