Komets coach Gary Graham and his Pyromaniacs Fireworks business is going to hold four shows throughout the area over the next two weeks.
The first is the Ossian Health and Rehab Freedom Fest at dusk (about 9:45 p.m.) Thursday (tomorrow). They'll be at Steeplechase Apartments on July 7, the Huntington Modelers Club (which is model airplanes) in Uniondale on July 8 and at Pleasant Lake on July 15.
The shows are free.
The store is located in Time Corners.
Gary Graham's five tips for using fireworks
1. Always be sure to secure and block in your aerial cakes, which assures nothing tips over.
2. Understand your backyard layout. Depending on the yard size, some fireworks will be better and safer than others.
3. When shooting artillery shells, never have your head over the tube when lighting.
4. Always have a water supply nearby.
5. Shop around before purchasing to get best deal. Don't fall for bogus buy-one-get-five-free deals.
