Fireworks stands officially open for the 4th of July period today.

It should be a hot one in Lubbock today, and folks will be getting ready to get their boom on when it cools this evening. A couple of reminders for ya, remember setting off those fireworks inside city limits is illegal, and be considerate of your neighbors no matter where you're at. Some veterans and some dogs have real problems with fireworks.

Also keep in mind that even though it wasn't dry enough to call for a fireworks ban, it's dry enough that you could do some real damage if you're not careful. Make sure your fireworks are completely out and be a good neighbor and pick up that fireworks trash when you're done.

Firework sales will continue through midnight on July 4th.
