Best Legal Fireworks, Right Here in Metamora

Best Legal Fireworks, Right Here in Metamora, Metamora Herald
Open July 1st 3-8, 2nd 3-8, 3rd 10-8, 4th 9-7

For several years an older couple has set up in the empty lot next to McDonald's around this time every season to sell fireworks for the annual celebration of our independence. Unfortunately, they were not able to this year, but you will still be able to purchase fireworks that are legal here in Illinois and still worth buying. The same family has been selling them in Central Illinois for quite a long time.
The gentleman currently operating the stand told me the history of the fireworks selling clan. Years ago the proprietor of Carl's Bakery & Restaraunt (the old big chicken place on Camp in East Peoria) had a young daughter who won the title "Little Miss Firecracker". Being the enterprising man he was he saw an opportunity and promptly set her up a small table out in front of the store to sell fireworks.
Today they sell fireworks throughout the area.

Stop by and grab some of the best drop pops you can find, as well as other great legal fireworks for your 4th festivities. No hoosker doos, hoosker don'ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers (with or without the scooter stick), or whistlin' kitty chasers.
