The Wichita Falls Police Department would like to wish you and your family a safe and happy 4th of July. With safety in mind, we would like to remind residents and visitors that the best way to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday with family and friends is by attending the Freedom Fest today at Sheppard Air Force Base.
The possession of all fireworks is illegal in the city limits of Wichita Falls. All violators will be subject to fines if caught discharging or in possession of fireworks. It is important that the public recognize the potential dangers in the use and handling of fireworks. The risk of injury, especially to children and young adults, is of great concern to us and we will be taking every violation seriously.
So let’s have a fun and safe Fourth of July by obeying all laws related to fireworks and by celebrating this special holiday in a responsible way.
