Fireworks sales fizzle
ASCENSION PARISH, La (NBC33) — Fireworks venders across the area are preparing for the New Year's Eve rush.
Venders say come Monday their places will be packed with people trying to brighten their holiday party.
Workers say so far this year's business has been super slow and the economy may be to blame.
"I'm thinking everybody's money is a little thin right now, and they are waiting for that next pay check to come in," Chris Saggese, with Chuck's discount fireworks, said. "Then they are just going to bum rush us that's what we're hopping for."
