Fourth of July is here, so if you’re stocking up ahead of a fireworks display, there are a few places around town you can buy some bottle rockets and black cats. Most of them are American Fireworks stands, sure, but here’s a definitive list, nonetheless.
(Disclaimer: It’s illegal to possess, use or sell fireworks within the city of Austin and within 5,000 feet of the city limits. Please don’t break any laws.)
Half Off Fireworks -
8800 Tara Ln
Austin, TX 78737
This locally owned fireworks stand even gives you the opportunity to buy fireworks online.
American Fireworks Superstores
These stores, which are a little different (OK, a lot different) than the stands you see on the side of the highway, are your one-stop shop for fireworks shopping. Also, they’re massive.
There are three locations in Central Texas:

- 8850 Camino Real Uhland, TX 78640
- 1315 Hwy 71 Bastrop, TX 78602
