POSTED: 12/30/14 12:18 AM

St. Maarten – Firefly Family Fireworks will begin with the sale of fireworks today from 12 noon until 6 p.m. The sale will continue until Wednesday or as long as supplies last. Tomorrow and Wednesday sales begin at 10 a.m. and continue until 6 p.m. Firefly has set up shop next to the Little League Ballpark on Pond Island.

Customers have to be 21 years of age or older to make a purchase, and they can expect some old favorites but also new fun products. “Assorted packs were very well received and popular last year so we have brought those back. Big sellers were products like the Excalibur, the King assortment packs, Rocket Assault,  Magical Wizard, our reloadable shells such as the Private Stash and the all famous Cutting Edge firecracker rolls,” Firefly team member Michanou Arrundell said.

“With the high demand, we have brought in more of everything so we encourage our loyal customers to come over to our sales location early to get there favorite fireworks.  ‎We also have new assorted packs especially appealing to kids such as Neon Lights and the Killer Value Assortment. Firecrackers start at $2,” she added.

Firefly will emphasize safety under their theme “Keep it in the Family, Keep it Safe”, with strict rules and guidelines that will be enforced when purchasing fireworks. Arrundell advised that everyone should walk with valid identification since certain 20-something-year-olds might not exactly look it. Even to purchase children oriented products, the person must be 21 years of age or older.  Three sales areas/booths will also be available.

Arrundell reminded potential customers that they are expected to be safe and responsible with where and how they are lighting fireworks. As such, Firefly will continue its practice of including safety guidelines in the sales bags of every purchase. She also reminded the public that they are not allowed to light any firecrackers in the public roads and parents should not allow their children to handle fireworks   without supervision.

“We actually prefer if the parent handle the fireworks and the children watch and enjoy from a distance,” she said.  Customers are prohibited from lighting any fireworks in the vicinity of the sale booths. Neither are customers allowed to smoke or have any open flame in the vicinity of   the booths.

Firefly has also partnered with Fun Miles again this year, affording customers the possibility redeem their Fun Miles for fireworks.  The company accepts cash or miles only.
