UPDATE:

Fireworks will be lighting up the sky in areas across Texoma.

Shooting off fireworks is legal in some places across Texoma, but that doesn't mean everywhere you go it's a good idea to do so.

That's why several cities and businesses have made sure to create an environment that will not only be fun, but safe too.

Planet Fireworks, a fireworks stand in Jolly,  has set aside six acres of land for the public to pop fireworks.

It's free and you can bring your chairs, blankets and coolers with food and drinks.

The event starts at seven and will wrap up at midnight.

You can also head to Texoma Motor Speedway on Seymour Highway tonight or tomorrow.

It's first come first serve and they say space is limited.

It cost $20 per vehicle.

You can go tonight and tomorrow evening starting at 8.

And in Henrietta Hapgood Park has been designated as a safe place for fireworks to be shot from as well.

They will have food, drinks and games for kids.

And at all locations fire crews will be on scene to make sure no accidents occur.

Wichita County, TX. -  If the new guidelines seem like a lot to follow there are safe places you can go to shoot your fireworks.

Many cities have designated areas for shooting fireworks that will be open to the public and monitored by the local volunteer fire departments.

The firework stand in Jolly has set aside six acres of land for the public to pop fireworks.

It's free and you can bring your chairs, blankets and coolers with food and drinks.

You don't have to buy your fireworks from planet fireworks, you can bring them from any vendor.

Planet Fireworks joined forces with the Jolly Volunteer Fire Department to plan the event and they will be monitoring the event in case any accidents happen.

This is the first time Jolly is hosting an event like this but organizers say they hope the family friendly atmosphere will help attract people for years to come.

"Most people wanna have fun and don't want to create a problem and this just helps enforce that they can come out here, enjoy their time, enjoy other peoples fireworks," says Big Stack Fireworks Owner Glenn Tarter.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and will wrap up at midnight.

Henrietta has also set aside a safe place to shoot fireworks.

Residents can go to Hapgood Park.

They will also have food, drinks and games for the kids.

The Henrietta Volunteer Fire Department will be on scene and will receive some of the proceeds from the event.
