East Texas Fireworks Sales Slow

Only days away from the fourth of July holiday and fireworks stands around East Texas say they're seeing very little business. The fourth is traditionally the biggest sales period of the year for fireworks, but vendors say that customers have been very light so far.

Many who deal in the seasonal items are worried that the tragic events of September 11th may put a somber mood on the holiday and effect sales.

Most have seen a normal trend of slow sales, but are hoping for a mad rush at the end.
