Citrus Heights has 21 fireworks stands this year. See which nonprofit is behind each one

Sentinel staff report–
Citrus Heights has a few more fireworks stands open this year compared to last year, with a total of 21 different temporary stands authorized around the city.

Sales of “safe and sane” fireworks are often one of the biggest annual fundraisers for various nonprofits, with sales legally allowed to begin June 28 at noon and continue through July 4.

As of Monday, the city said 21 fireworks stands have been issued licenses in Citrus Heights this year. Purchases from one location may help a local little league, while making that same purchase a few blocks up the street could support police or a local church.
