It is New Year's weekend and that means fireworks sales begin this Saturday. Fireworks vendors Greg Troutman and Eric Wilcox are ready to go even though they know their sales over the next three days won't come close to matching what they do prior to July 4th.

But Troutman notes it is still worthwhile because customers like shooting two or three fireworks at midnight on New Years Eve. Wilcox says it's about having options for families on New Years Eve.

While fireworks can be sold Saturday, Sunday and Monday, use is restricted to only eight hours, from 4:30 p.m. New Year's Eve to 12:30 a.m. New Year's Day.
