Some Fourth of July fireworks booths in San Luis Obispo County opened Sunday after they cleared fire inspections.
Bob Lund, a volunteer for the Arroyo Grande In Bloom nonprofit fireworks booth, said sales generally start pretty slow, but will pick up Wednesday and go full tilt Thursday and Friday.
Shari McCarthy, a longtime volunteer and board member with Camp Fire Girls USA Central Coast Council, said their fireworks booth is a good fundraiser for Camp Fire Girls.
“It’s very intense, labor-wise, but still a lot of fun because you’re working with people whose goals are to raise funds for the Camp Fire club programs.”

Fireworks are permissible for discharge from noon July 3 through midnight July 5, according to the Five Cities Fire Authority website.
