Firework sales down this year, possibly due to burn ban
Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) —
Some fireworks stands have been busy despite a statewide burn ban, but sales as a whole are down this year.
Whether it's bottle rockets, firecrackers, or artillery shells, folks at Mongo's Fireworks were trying to get as many fireworks as they could fit in their cars today.
But, owner Rodney Logarbow says business is slower than last year.
He said his best-selling item this year: the inexpensive Pop-Pops, which is made for kids.
