Are you ready for things to blow up and go boom? Well, you don't have to wait as long as you think.
Fireworks are legal to sell for Texas Independence Day. For those not up on your Texas History, that day is March 4th.
There are actually six times a year when Texans can buy fireworks including near Independence Day, Memorial Day, Texas Independence Day, San Jacinto Day, Cinco De Mayo, and New Years Day. Sorry if that order messes with your brain but not all of those sales periods are necessarily applicable. The Independence Day and New Years' holidays are pretty much a shoo-in across the board while the others are at the discretion of Texas counties.
Lubbock has opted to make fireworks available for Texas Independence Day which means you can start buying fireworks next Friday the 25th and through midnight on March 2nd. It's kind of odd that they were allowed to proceed with sales because we've been under so many fire weather alerts, but hey, freedom and stuff.
It's highly doubtful that we'll have the usual armageddon-on-your-block type of fireworks displays that we get on the two major holidays during this period, but you should know that it's possible. Of course, fireworks in the city limits are still illegal....but of course, the police still have better things to do than listen to you complain about your neighbor's kid blowing up firecrackers one at a time for days on end.
