Halfway through their annual firework selling period, Jake’s Fireworks in Pittsburg says they are expecting a large crowd this year.
The company has been operating in Pittsburg for about 80 years. Local firework sales have been open since June 27th. They are expecting a hike in customers stopping in closer to Independence Day. Their inventory includes hundreds of fireworks from sparklers to firecrackers. They’re noticing one rocket that’s a fan favorite.
