Firework stand workers hope to eclipse last year’s ‘record breaking’ sales

  • Updated
LFR reminds fireworks are prohibited inside city limits

LUBBOCK, Texas (KJTV) - Firework sales begin today in Lubbock County.

Stand workers have been unpacking their inventory all morning to get ready for the Fourth of July. Stands say they saw “record-breaking sales” in 2020 and they hope to top them in 2021.

Stand owner Samantha Hole has been in the business for three years.

“We truly don’t do not know what to expect,” she said. “We’re hoping and praying that it is just another record-breaking year, and people truly take advantage of being able to get together and be with family and friends. So that is what we are hoping for. Anybody in sales hopes for another record-breaking year following a great one,” Hole said.

But remember, fireworks are illegal inside the city limits, and you could face a thousand dollar fine.

The city will hold their annual Fourth on Broadway festival next Saturday, including the fireworks show. Buffalo Springs Lake will hold its fireworks show next Friday.
