    I'm looking at buying a bunch of fireworks for a 4th of july party, anyone know where the cheapest place to get them? There are stands all around my house in spring, I drive by one of the warehouses everyday on the way to work, but dont know if they are cheaper than the stands, or if anyone knows the best place to get a bunch of them?

    There's a burn ban in effect for Harris and not sure about surrounding counties.

    Fireworks world is the most expensive, it depends on which part of town you live in because they don't sell them in the illegal zones. Your best bet are STANDS, particularly TNT stands... they usually give you bundles.

    The black cats warehouse on 290 between huffmeister and 1960 is the cheapest place I've found over the years.

    my layoff just cut out our annual fireworks show. :(

    I read that, i went and looked at the pdf on my local firestations website, mentioned the ban, but nothing about fireworks, just commercial burning, even said you can have campfires and bon fires still.

    Im in Harris county, but spring city limits, im about 3 miles north of IAH near Carters Country.

    There are stands all over around my house, i usually buy out of the dealers trunk, but paid alot for the fireworks out of the stands.

    Last year we started the show around 11pm and it lasted for almost 2 straight hours. i just buy a bunch of the cakes and the small pyro show ones.

    if we dont' get rain by july 4th, i can pretty well assure you that amateurs will not be allowed to shoot off fireworks. the big fireworks shoes will happen, though.

    COUNTIES’ DECISIONS
    • COUNTIES: Counties had until June 15 to restrict sales of “skyrockets with sticks” and “missiles with fins” during fireworks season, Wednesday through July 4, if the drought index went above 575. Even after June 15, county judges can ban sales, making it a wait-and-see situation for vendors.

    • HOUSTON: Fireworks may be allowed in most unincorporated areas of the county, but they’re prohibited in Houston. An ordinance authorizes a fine of $2,500 per item. During 2008’s July Fourth season, 71 citations were issued.


    As July 4 approaches, Michael Girdley is praying for rain.

    The president of Alamo Fireworks, based in China Grove, is worried a summer drought could lead to a fireworks ban in Harris County, one of Girdley’s biggest markets.

    What about Galveston area? I hear Crystal beach is always a hot spot, but after a hurricane, I hear the place does not exist anymore?
