Won't be seeing these in Austin.

It’s pretty well-known by now that burn bans across the state caused bans on personal fireworks and canceled numerous public fireworks shows. But that hasn’t stopped some towns from still putting on public fireworks displays.

Besides neighborhoods having their own parades, the city of Austinisn’t doing much today. If you really want to celebrate with rockets this year and are willing to make the drive, Marble Falls, Kingsland, Georgetown, Kyle, Andice, and Horseshoe Bay will all host public fireworks displays.

Texas isn’t the only state with burn bans, throughout the South, cities just aren’t willing to take the risk on more wildfires.
