The 4th of July is this weekend, and you know what that means: fireworks.

As usual, fireworks are not permitted within Lubbock city limits. You can face up to a $1,000 fine for setting them off in the city. The Lubbock Police Department and Lubbock Fire Department are encouraging citizens to set off their fireworks outside of the city limits.

Also, keep in mind that the City of Lubbock has good reason for not allowing fireworks. They're not banned just to ruin your fun. They're a fire hazard, can cause serious injury, and lead to distress in people suffering from PTSD as well as pets. So think about that if you decide to break the law and set them off anyway.

You're all set to purchase and set off all the fireworks you want if you already live in a town outside of Lubbock. Please still be mindful of those around you and stay safe. If you don't want to leave Lubbock to enjoy some fireworks, then check out the numerous firework shows that are happening in and around Lubbock this 4th of July.
