ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of people were out getting some fireworks to celebrate the July Fourth holiday. Workers at a stand in the Kmart parking lot say they be open late on the Fourth, until eleven or midnight.

They expect to sell thousands of fireworks over the next two days.  Their most popular items are the assortment packages.

We spoke with one mom who said buying fireworks is a tradition and they enjoy spending time at home on the fourth.  "I enjoy staying home with my kids. We have great family time and its exciting to have just me and my kids just having us and being there together," said Dameta Jackson.  

The firework stand at the Kmart parking lot will be opened for folks Saturday as well starting at 9:00 a.m.
