Some Pushed Hard To Sell New Year's Fireworks

Posted: Updated:

2013 came in a flash, and now it can go out with a bang. North Dakota is allowing fireworks to be sold from December 26th to January 1st under a new state law. Just in time for you to celebrate New Year's.

This snow is an unlikely sight out front of an open firework store.

Dave Reuter- Memory Fireworks: "Cause the cold crisp air, the colors just show up a lot more and then you also get a reflection off the snow, so it's a totally new experience than you would get during the 4th of July."

Typically fireworks season comes in the middle of summer, but this New Year's is all about color.

Reuter: "Due to the fact that he saw customers wanted to the opportunity to buy fireworks for the New Year." And the owner of memory fireworks fought pretty hard to bring you that new experience.

It could be a new tradition. Reuter: "You know what better time do it, you got   the 4th of July and then to bring in the New Year's, have a lot of fireworks going off, have a good time."

The sale of fireworks over the holiday season hasn't been allowed in North Dakota for ten year. Law makers were mostly concerned with safety of those shooting them off.

Reuter: "If you do have neighbors, make sure they are okay with that, if you are going to be lighting them off later at night."

But state repetitiveness backed the bill, letting 2013 go out with a bang.

You might not picture snow while lighting off fireworks, but it could be your new tradition.

In Minnesota fireworks can be sold all year long, but shops are restricted on which fireworks can be sold and used.
