Shortage of fireworks, shows canceled
Several American cities won’t hold fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July this year. For several reasons – lack of staff due to the pandemic, supply chain challengesconcerns about Forest fires and public safety due to weeks of dry weather. Broadcast issues means it may be more difficult to find a store with fireworks in stock and in some areas, such as stone castle, Colorado, the sale and use of fireworks is totally prohibited for now because of dry weather. Public fireworks will take place in many areas, although several have been canceled this year or postponed to a later date.
However, there is evidence that more and more people are choosing to celebrate at home with record fireworks sales during the pandemic. Fireworks sales to consumers doubled in 2020 from the previous year, reaching $1.8 billion and the trend continues as personal sales hit $2.2 billion in 2021. Now that pandemic restrictions have been lifted, the figure could be even higher this year.

Zoldan, explained, “At Phantom, we are ready to help our nation move forward and recover from the past difficult years.
