Having some 'boom boom' for your NYE celebrations is a must

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The 2014 year is coming to a close and News Leader 9 talked to a familiar face about the "Boom Booms" you'll be hearing soon.

Wanda Lamb is known as the "Bang Bang Lady" at the Fireworks Outlet in Seale, AL. Many people know her and employee "Boom Boom" by their unique and popular commercials.

And with fireworks being legal in Russell County, these ladies, and similar stores, are very busy this time of year as folks get ready for New Year's Eve.

"Yesterday, we saw 53 people. We might see, on the 30th or 31st, our 2 busiest days. 1,000 people a day, maybe more," says Lamb.

The Bang Bang Lady also has some safety advice for those celebrating the new year with fireworks: don't let kids play with them. Also, always have a bucket of water nearby to put the fireworks out.

Remember, fireworks are illegal in Phenix City and the same goes for much of Georgia.
