Fireworks season is about to begin, and in the Harvey County community it has already started.


Burrton began allowing the discharge of fireworks June 27. Walton will being June 30. All other towns will follow in July.


As of Monday, the city of Newton had issued 11 permits for fireworks stands.


Also of note, Kidron Bethel Village has canceled its annual fireworks extravaganza, and Peabody has made modifications to the annual celebration. In Peabody, there will be a Facebook live presentation at @peabodyfireworks. The annual show will be limited to aerial fireworks, with no one permitted inside the Peabody park during the display.
