Pine Belt residents spending a few extra dollars on fireworks with the biggest bang

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

With New Year's only a few days away, many are looking to celebrate it in grand style with fireworks.

Although there are hundreds of different types of fireworks, many are willing to spend a few extra dollars and are out looking for those fireworks with the biggest bang.

Every year firework stands bring in new fireworks, and while roman candles and bottle rockets are very popular, this year it seems folks are buying something a little bit louder.

"We have a lot of people that really like our artillery shells because it goes up in the air and it makes a loud burst and there's a lot of color involved with them," said Hale Fireworks Warehouse Manager Charlie Cable. "People really like to see the color, other people really like the noise behind it."

At Hale Fireworks Superstore, the artillery shell named Zeus is by far the most popular, the most purchased, and the one with the biggest bang.
