  • how much do you spend on fireworks?

    just $10-20 or sparklers for the kids?

    a family pack of $50 or something?

    do you go all-out on the big stuff? (we have individual firework items that cost $80 a piece!

    what do you spend each year?

    (i just spent $80 on fireworks and that was with a ton of stuff being on sale (some of it 75% off regular price) and then an additional 25% off entire purchase today only.

    And... I didn't buy very much but I did buy several larger items.

    (in Washington, we have more than the "safe and sane" stuff avilable... we have stuff that flys thru the air!

  • We usually stock up when we go to the beach and we get about $40-$60 of stuff, never the packs though. I know some guys up in Long Island though that spend $3-$5 thousand each 4th and they're like one of about five families on their block that do so! I went up one year and it was a VERY interesting 4th!

  • We buy nothing here. It is illegal and we really have no interest in it. We might go somewhere to watch a show, but that is it.

  • We usually just go down near the golf course here and watch their display. Occasionally we'll spend $20 on stuff for the kids.

  • I usually end up spending about $60-$70.

    We can only buy the Safe & Sane because of the fire danger but there are always people up the street lighting off the illegal ones so we usually get a pretty good show.

    The fines for illegal fireworks can be up to $10,000 if you've been caught more than once. I don't know how people have the guts to even buy them with a penalty that high!
