7:30am on New Years Eve and the fireworks stands are open. (the stands are there year round)
I expect this means it will be an eventful evening.
There is one stand, the largest around, barn really, which is not open. They have sign out front reading “City of Roanoke forced us to close! Stand up to municipal tyranny!”
Perhaps they shall be the Alamo of fireworks and it’ll be an extra exciting evening!
