Lenoir City The Fourth of July forecast is washing out revenue for local businesses.

Those selling fireworks said the day before the holiday is usually the busiest day of the year. But with the weather we've been seeing - fewer customers are flowing in. Fewer customers mean less money flooding their pockets.

Despite the rain - some still plan to celebrate the holiday with a bang.

"It's my daughter's birthday - her birthday is July 3rd - so we always look forward to celebrating," said Denene Boyd.

The owners at Bimbo Fireworks said they did notice a decline in sales, how much, right now they're not sure.
