Fireworks on the 4th? Better do your own thing...

The skies over a scattering of Western U.S. cities will stay dark for the third consecutive Fourth of July as some major fireworks displays are canceled again this year — some over wildfire concerns amid dry weather and others because of enduring pandemic-related staffing and supply chain issues.
Phoenix canceled its three major Independence Day displays because it couldn't obtain professional-grade fireworks. Shows in several other cities around Phoenix are still on.
"Unless you're in a really remote area where that was the only show, most people will be able to find a show nearby," said Julie Heckman, executive director of the American Pyrotechnics Association.
Overseas shipping, transportation in the U.S., rising insurance costs and labor shortages have led to the canceled displays, along with demand for fireworks shows at concerts, sports stadiums and the Fourth of July holiday that largely were absent during the first two years of the pandemic.
It's the damnedest thing - here in Florida you can buy all manner of fireworks at road-side stands, at gas station and supermarkets, even at Sam's and Costco. You just can't do anything (sic) with them. It's illegal to set off fireworks here in the state. That makes a lot of sense, don't it?

  1. Until just a couple years ago, fireworks were sold in PA but were illegal for PA residents to possess or use. They were completely illegal in NJ at the time. Funny thing, many of the PA fireworks stores were right on the NJ border. These days lame fireworks (nothing that goes bang or goes up in the air) are sold everywhere in NJ.
