It’s that time of year again. Fireworks time. It’s when things go boom in the dark, and some neighbors get cranky about it. But it only lasts a week or so.
Officially, within the limits of the Town of Luther, fireworks at home are allowed beginning June 30 through July 4. The ordinance says the hours are from 10 am – 10 pm on Sunday through Thursday of that week, and 10 am – Midnight on Friday and Saturday.
In the unincorporated areas, it’s game on. Here’s the obligatory reminder about safety, BE SAFE. Here’s the obligatory request to be neighborly. Those nights are not easy for some people and some animals who get anxious about the after-dark noise.
It’s also the time of year for fireworks stands to pop up. They are open now through July 4. It’s a draw to bring city folks out our way. Fireworks are not allowed there.
Shipman’s Fireworks stand at the Ag Barn supports Luther’s FFA and 4H. It’s located on Route 66, past the bridge and across from the Dollar General. This stand helps support activities for two important organizations for our community’s youth.
Opus Entertainment’s fireworks stand is two miles east on the corner of Route 66 and County Line Road at the Threatt Filling Station. A portion of proceeds from those sales will help fund more renovations for the historic station. Bonus, a sno-cone stand is set up near the Opus stand at the Threatt Station site.
How about that? You buy fireworks in Luther and support great causes!
