Cities Gearing Up For July 4th

Cities Gearing Up For July 4th

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

Places like Fireworks World are staying busy. Everyone's wanting to get their hands on some last minute crowd pleasers.

Paulette Travis has helped hundreds of customers this week pick out their buys. However, before spending hard cash on these fireworks you might want to check and see what your local law enforcement has to say.

"You're not supposed to do it inside the city limits but usually outside the city limits it's fair game. I mean just be courteous of people, clean up your mess and have fun," said Travis.

In most cases it's fair game when shooting fireworks outside city limits. The City of Mobile has had a ban in place since the 1980's. But, the law varies from city to city. For instance, just up the road in Satsuma there's no ban.

"The third of July is the busiest day for us all year around. Thousands of people come out here to buy everything they can get their hands on," said an employee.

Businesses do their best to inform everyone, but at the end of the day it's up to you to check with you local leaders.

A fireworks display will be held at Battleship Park Thursday night at 9 p.m. If the event is rained out, the event will be held on Saturday evening.
