4th of July fireworks now for sale: buy them in Columbia Heights, Petworth

Fireworks Stand, 2300 Block of MLK Avenue SE If you like fireworks, this is your time and Columbia Heights is your place to buy them.

The city's approved fireworks vendors are now open for business, and a lot of the vendors are in our area. (The city published a map of all the vendors here.)

There are two on 14th Street, at 3429 14th and 3531 14th, plus two on Georgia Avenue at 4140 and 4013, and another at the corner of Georgia and New Hampshire.

You won't be able to get the huge ones that shoot up in the air and explode, but you can get sparklers, ones that make noise and shoot sparks into the sky, and other fun stuff.

Unfortunately they don't allow the tanks either -- those are my favorite. We staged a reenactment of the Battle of Kursk on the roof of a Park Road townhouse a few years ago. (The residents were cool with it, though for safety reasons it is probably not recommended.)
