Firework Sales Boom Leading Up To Independence Day
Until recently, nearly every single North Central Florida county was under a mandatory burn ban.
Before Last Wednesday firework vendors in our area were worried their fourth wouldn't sparkle.
Because of recent rain, Marion, Alachua, Gilchrist and Levy counties have given people the go-ahead to light fireworks this Fourth of July and vendors say their sales are booming.
