Fourth of July Fireworks Legal in Unincorporated Areas of Comal County Like Canyon Lake

Go ahead, light those fireworks over the July 4 holiday weekend but only in unincorporated parts of Comal County.

Fireworks are prohibited in the City of New Braunfels but permitted in unincorporated parts of the county like Canyon Lake.

However, fireworks are banned from launch on roadways and boat ramps. They also are banned within 600 feet of places of worship and licensed childcare centers and schools. It is illegal to shoot off fireworks from cars or at other vehicles.

Fireworks are not legal on any U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) property/parks/trails.

A burn ban is not in effect, but would not impact fireworks in the Canyon Lake area anyway. The State of Texas controls use and sale of fireworks, not the county.

In January, Comal County Fire Marshal Kory Klabunde told MyCanyonLake.com the fireworks industry has created and made available better fireworks. Missiles with fins are a thing of the past, along with rockets with sticks.

For more information, visit the county’s website.

To report a fireworks violation, make a noise complaint, or report someone in possession of fireworks within New Braunfels city limits call 832-221-4100. To report a fire or injury call 9-1-1.
