OMAHA (KPTM)- It's the time of year where there will be more than just stars shooting in the sky.
"It's a great way for them to make a lot of money in a short amount of time," said Dan Williams, of Wild Willy's Fireworks.
"It's one of those fundraiser's that we count on when we budget every year," said Jon Costello, of Sarpy County Habitat for Humanity. Habitat for Humanity is one of the many non-profits hoping to cash in on fireworks sales.
Firework sales may have been a dud for a couple of days, but Williams said sales are starting to make a big bang. "Earlier they started out a little sluggish, but we're sizzling now."
The slow start had Costello worried. "We had a really good business last year. This year, it started off slow, but this year we didn't start selling until a Monday."
"We had a unique situation with only one weekend of sales-as opposed to last year, where we had two," said Williams.
Costello hopes to make about 90 percent of his profit in the next couple days. "We are hoping more people come out."
Renee Salem is one shopper who didn't light the Fourth of July fuse too early. "Because I've been lazy and haven't been shopping yet. We don't light them off until the fourth."
Salem left with a full bag of fireworks, and Costello said he hopes others will too. "I hope people will start wanting to fire off a bunch of fireworks and need to reload," Costello said with a smile.
Fireworks can be lit off in Omaha until July 4th between 8 AM and 11 PM.
If you don't want to light off your own fireworks, but still want to catch a show, fireworks will be lit off at Werner Park Tuesday night.
Also, fireworks will be on display after the Home Run Derby at TD Ameritrade park around 10 PM Tuesday.
Firework shows on the Fourth are in Ralston, Harrah's Casino, and Champion's Run. They are set to start around 10 PM.
