The other day when I was driving from my house in Spring Texas down Louetta to the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Gary Greene office, I saw the signs and without a calendar I knew the Fourth of July will soon be here. What were the signs? They were big and red and rectangular and located along Louetta on just about every corner from I-45 to Hwy 249. They were fireworks stands.
The red fireworks stands show up twice a year. As Texas State law permits the sale of consumer fireworks for 24 days each year from June 24 through July 1st and December 20th through January 1st.
Spring Texas is located in unincorporated Harris County and fireworks are LEGAL in unincorporated areas of Harris County. There are some restrictions on where the fireworks can be set off such as they can’t be ignited within 600 feet of churches, schools, hospitals, asylums, or licensed child care centers.
If you are moving to Spring Texas, one thing you should know is Texans love fireworks and I do mean love fireworks. So expect to hear a lot of noise and some great local fireworks displays around the Fourth of July holiday. If you don’t like fireworks, then maybe you will at least appreciate the $30 million in extra tax revenues that is generated each year from fireworks sales in Harris County.
Enjoy your Fourth of July and if you decide to have your own fireworks display please be careful.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
