Greensboro, NC -- The fourth of July is almost here, and fireworks are usually a part of the celebration. While many of you will go watch a fireworks display, some people want to put on a show of their own.
A fireworks stand in Greensboro says business has been good, and with the fourth of July in the middle of the week, employees say people seem to be ready to celebrate throughout the week.
"I'm probably going to celebrate all week. I just moved here from Brooklyn, so we're not really allowed in New York city to do these types of activities. So, you know what, it's going to be a big week of explosives and sparkles probably," said Louis Ruoti.
Before you celebrate with fireworks, here's what you need to know:
• North Carolina law allows consumer fireworks: Including sparklers, fountains and novelty fireworks that do not explode (such as snaps, pops and glow worms)
• North Carolina does not allow some fireworks: Including firecrackers, ground spinners, roman candles, bottle rockets, mortars (any device that is intended to spin, leave the ground, or fly through the air)
• You must be 16 years old to buy fireworks
