Disgarded fireworks

July 5, 2010 | 7:17 p.m. CDT
John Gerau, son of Bob Gerau owner of Bob's Fireworks, hauled a truck-load of spent fireworks from his July 4th celebration into the store on the 5th for disposal. John spent 4 hours setting up his display, which lasted 30 minutes and rung up a bill of $1,500. Each year his fireworks are sorted by size and speed, then glued to a board and lit with a single fuse. Last night's show entertained upwards of 400 eager attendees.
