Have you been hearing fireworks in your neighborhood recently?  

Tis the season for bottle rockets, firecrackers,  and much bigger than that.  

Jerry Sumera with Fancy's Fireworks in Gretna says fireworks sales have been up and weather permitting, it should continue.  

He says down south we love our fireworks.  He says the bigger, the better.  
"New Orleans man, go big or go home," Sumera laughs.  "They like the big stuff, if you don't have the big stuff, they ain't comin'."   

Sumera adds that the Saints winning is good for business too as you may have heard fireworks going off in your neighborhood after Sunday's game.
"The Saints doing well is good for business all around," Sumera adds.  

"For 2019, we've seen a huge influx of new fireworks coming out on display," Sumera notes.  "People call me now for gender reveal parties, that's the big thing right now, people doing blue fireworks, pink fireworks for gender reveals."   

Fireworks are only allowed in Gretna, St. John the Baptist Parish, Plaquemines Parish and unincorporated St. Tammany Parish.
