Texas Firework Laws and Regulations

Everything is bigger in Texas, including the love for fireworks. But before you light that fuse, it’s important to know about the laws and regulations surrounding fireworks in the Lone Star State. Texas has some of the most relaxed fireworks laws in the country, but that doesn’t mean you can set off just any type of firework whenever and wherever you please. Understanding Texas fireworks laws are crucial for a safe and enjoyable celebration.

Overview of Texas Firework Laws and Regulations

Texas firework laws are regulated by the Texas Department of Insurance, with specific rules and regulations that must be followed. The use of fireworks is regulated by local ordinances, so it’s important to check with your city or county for any additional regulations.

Fireworks can be sold in Texas from June 24th to July 4th and from December 20th to January 1st. However, it’s important to note that not all types of fireworks are legal in the state. The use of fireworks is also prohibited in certain parts of the state, including areas with high fire risks, such as drought-stricken areas.

Types of Fireworks That are Legal in Texas

In Texas, the types of fireworks that are legal to use include sparklers, fountains, cones, mines, and rockets. These types of fireworks are classified as “consumer fireworks” and can be purchased by anyone over the age of 16. However, it’s important to note that the size and weight of consumer fireworks are also regulated in Texas.

Consumer fireworks must not contain more than 50 milligrams of explosive material for most items, and no more than 130 milligrams for certain types of rockets. Additionally, the total weight of explosive material in a single firework device must not exceed 500 grams.

Types of Fireworks That are Illegal in Texas

There are several types of fireworks that are illegal in Texas, including firecrackers, skyrockets with sticks, missile-type rockets, bottle rockets, roman candles, and aerial fireworks. While these types of fireworks can be purchased in other states, they are not legal to use in Texas.

It’s also important to note that modifying legal fireworks to create illegal fireworks is prohibited in Texas. This includes adding explosive materials or other materials to a legal firework device.

Where You Can Legally Set Off Fireworks in Texas

In general, fireworks can be legally set off on private property or on public property with the permission of the property owner. However, it’s important to take safety precautions when setting off fireworks, including having a clear and open area, not setting off fireworks near buildings, and having a water source nearby in case of emergency.
