Kaleidoscopic tents and assertive posters of Uncle Sam are appearing around the area, enticing both children and adults with a recreation they can enjoy only twice a year.


Fireworks Safety Tips

Alcohol and fireworks don’t mix. Have a “designated shooter” to light all fireworks.

Make sure the area is clear of all foliage and overhanging tree branches.

Keep a 50-foot clearance from building, vehicles and spectators.

Keep an extinguisher or water hose nearby.

Don’t wear open-toe shoes or loose clothing.

Parents should supervise children at all times.

Fireworks should be lit from a flat surface.

Read the directions on each firework.

Plan ahead and pay attention.
