Fireworks stands open for Independence Day

Fireworks on the July 4 is as American as apple pie, and with big aerial displays canceled this year because of COVID-19, local fireworks stands are hoping for blowout sales.

“It’s been pretty steady,” said Cristina Mata, who volunteers at the Our Lady of Lourdes School’s fireworks booth in front of Round Table Pizza, in Colusa.

The booths, which are run by nonprofit organizations and schools, are big fundraisers.

Money raised from the OLL booth will help subsidize students to attend the private Catholic School, which is gearing up for the 2020-2021 school year to start on Aug. 11.

“We are on schedule as long as the governor let us open,” said Terri Swiggum, whose grandson will be in eighth grade.

Fireworks booths throughout Colusa County sell only Safe and Sane fireworks, offered by Phantom or TNT, which are approved by the State Fire Marshal.

The booths were allowed to open this year despite COVID-19, and are operating under guidelines provided by state health officials.

People shopping for fireworks should not shop at any fireworks stand if they are feeling sick. Those who do shop at the stands should keep a distance of six feet from other customers.
