ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Are you stocked up on fireworks to celebrate tonight? 

If not,you still have time to get some.

Pyro Zone on Slappey will be open until midnight tonight, making sure South Georgia patriots have the sparklers and fireworks they want.

Owner Michael Pearlman said business has been pretty steady over the weekend and today.

He said now that more people are aware all consumer fireworks are legal in the state, he's seeing more people come in. 

Pyro Zone is staying open late for last minute shoppers. 

"We're the only store open this late," said Pearlman. "We have people that will go shoot their fire works, then run out, come back and buy more, go shoot them and run out, and come back again. We've had customers come in every single day, sometimes two or three times a day."

You can light fireworks all year from 10 a.m. to  9 p.m. 

On July fourth and New Year's, the hours are extended. 

For tonight, you can shoot off fireworks until midnight. 

And for New Year's Day, you can ignite fireworks until 1 a.m.
