Firework Sales, Better Than Expected

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — At the Crossfire World Outreach Ministries’ tent in Springfield, managers said they weren’t sure what to expect with the Fourth of July falling on a Wednesday, this year. But their relief sales ended up being better than expected.

Most firework stands will continue to sell fireworks through Friday; after that, they become banned statewide.

“Tomorrow is the very last day. Past July 6th, we can’t even give it away. It’s the law in Oregon, so we have to send it back and store it for next year,” said Zachary Parnell with Crossfire World Outreach Ministries.

Fireworks can be light off in Lane County any day of the year; so now’s the chance to pick some up before sales are banned.
