Region 8 is filled with firework stands this holiday weekend.

According to one vendor in Kennett, K’s Fireworks Stand starts selling around June 20 with business peaking after July 1.

Owners Pam and Dave Hackett said they have been successful every Independence Day so far.

“I mean you don't get a lot of big, big customers but sometimes you will get some of those that will come in here and they will spend about $400 to $500 on fireworks," Pam said. "And then you got some that'll spend their $20."

Pam said they usually bring in thousands of dollars each year in firework sales.
