Fire department to host fireworks stand

by | Jun 29, 2023 | Area news, Latest

The Farmersville Fire Department fireworks stand located at Bates Machine and MFG Inc. has all the pyrotechnics anyone may need for the Fourth of July.

According to Fire Captain Kelsey Casey, the stand is run by volunteer firefighters and has a “range of fireworks” including large 500 Gram Cakes, a firework that holds the maximum amount of pyrotechnic powder allowed in a multi-shot repeater. Casey added this specific firework could “make for a great private firework show.”

“Our Fire Department is staffed by volunteer firefighters who work professionally to serve their community,” said Casey. “This firework stand helps assist these men and women better serve our community.”

Paul Wynn and Brian Morrison, owners of 1836 Fireworks, donated the fireworks that will be sold at the stand. Casey said the proceeds will be split up between the Volunteer Fire Department and 1836 Fireworks at the end of the selling season. The Volunteer Fire Department will use the revenue to purchase tools, gear and provide training to members.

The shop will be open everyday from noon to 10 p.m. until Tuesday, July 4 when the stand will close at midnight for last-minute buyers. 

Residents looking for a firework show can attend Sparks of Freedom on Independence Day at Southlake Park. The event, sponsored by 4B and hosted by the Farmersville fire department runs from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and features music, vendors, bounce houses and a firework show at 9:30 p.m.
