Fireworks stands were closed for the July 4th weekend but they will be open for the Christmas selling season which runs from December 20th – January 2, 2012. Due to the historic drought conditions experienced by Spring Texas, the stands were closed for July 4th. Although Spring Texas is still in a drought, the Harris County Commissioner has decided the threat of potential fire from fireworks is not great enough to close the stands.
The fireworks business will NOT be back to usual though. The Harris County Commissioner has banned the sale of rockets with sticks attached to them (bottle rockets) and missiles with fins attached as he still considers these types of fireworks to be fire hazards. The partial ban accounts for 20% of the firework stands business so it will hurt but it’s better than not being open for business at all.
Fireworks are LEGAL in unincorporated areas of Harris County which includes Spring Texas. Due to a partial removal of the ban on the sale of fireworks, the Holidays will now come with a BANG!

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house sold in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
