It's a few months late, but Dodge City residents will finally be able to shoot off fireworks this Sunday.
The city banned fireworks in July because of dry conditions from the summer drought. City officials say residents can use any fireworks they've been saving since July on Sunday, which is Veterans Day. Fireworks will be allowed within city limits from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
City spokesowoman Jane Longmeyer says the city is strongly encouraging people to use the fireworks they might have been storing for five months.
The Dodge City Daily Globe reports police will still confiscate fireworks from anyone not using them properly. Fireworks will not be allowed on public property but the city will have its yearly fireworks show Sunday evening.
