Monday morning, the Lubbock County Commissioners approved the county holding a retail sales period for fireworks sales for Memorial Day. The new fireworks sales period for Memorial Day was a part of a recent change in state law that also allowed an additional fireworks sales period for Texas border counties that celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

Fireworks will be allowed to be sold in unincorporated parts of Lubbock County from Wednesday, May 22nd through Monday, May 27th.

A reminder, that the sale, and use, of fireworks is illegal in the City of Lubbock.
