Smith County residents will be able to buy and shoot fireworks memorial Day weekend.
Smith County commissioners voted to approve fireworks sales May 22-27.
Smith County residents can shoot fireworks throughout the year, but are restricted on when they can buy them, according to Smith County Fire Marshal Connie McCoy-Wason.
The 84th Texas Legislature passed a bill authorizing three additional periods that fireworks may be sold to the public as long as the Commissioners Courts in each county issues an order authorizing such sales each year.
The three additional holidays are Texas Independence Day, San Jacinto Day and Memorial Day.
Before the three additional holidays were approved, fireworks could only be bought and sold for New Years Day and July 4th.
