Video: Inside a Fireworks Stand

Filipa Rodrigues for KUT News
Sales started somewhat slowly at American Fireworks, but sellers expect them to pick up closer to the Fourth.

Plan on shooting some fireworks off this July 4th?

KUT News recently traveled out to a fireworks stand along Highway 290 to see how sellers were faring. Sales are up from last year, when a ban on fireworks was in effect, but American Fireworks proprietor Keith Coober noted the challenges in a business where you can sales only come on the Fourth and New Year’s.

KUT’s University of Porto interns Filipa Rodrigues and Mario Jacino returned from shooting this video earlier this week – all fingers attached.
