July 4 is just around the corner, and while it’s a day to celebrate our independence, it’s also a day of food, fun, and fireworks! If you’re looking to put some bang in your celebration, here are a few places in the Wichita Falls area where you can find fireworks.

Before we get to the list, remember that it is illegal to possess or discharge fireworks within the city limits of Wichita Falls. If you’re caught, the fine is punishable up to $2,000, so think before you act. It’s not because the city doesn’t want you to have fun, it’s because fireworks pose a risk for personal injury and property damage. If you’re looking to really see a big fireworks show that night, the city is providing a display at the MPEC.

For those who like to have a show of their own, check out these places where you can purchase your supplies for an evening with lots of pop!
