6/21/12-Fireworks went on sale this week, and tents like this one are popping up all across Missouri, most located near interstates to capitalize on sales to folks passing through prior to the July 4th holiday. Stands like this one, Fireworks City on Hwy. 109 in Eureka, can stay open through July 10th, when they're mandated to halt sales. Fireworks City-Eureka manager Mary Corbett isn't worried about the extremely dry conditions across the state this year and its possible negative impact on sales. "It's dry now," she tells KMOX News, "but every year on the 3rd, if you look it up, it rains like crazy." (KMOX/Brett Blume)
