They woke me up in the middle of the night last night and now my kids keep getting out of bed because they can't fall asleep with the noise. Isn't there a noise ordinance (we're in Spring) and when does this stop anyway? I've lived in lots of places in the US and this is the first one where there have been fireworks at times other than New Years and 4th of July. How long do people generally light them off?

I noticed that The Woodlands has an ordinance against them.

i hear them too in Spring...heard quite a few last night as well....they're only popping fireworks becase they've been selling fireworks since last week already for new years eve...but if it's not New Years Eve, they'll prolly stop around 10-11pm. but expect fireworks to be going on well into the late night/early morning on new years eve, like 2am. it's hard for kids to not want to pop fireworks when there are like 8-10 fireworks stands on Rayford rd alone. you may still hear some fireworks 1-2 days max, after new years day.

i'm worried they'll keep me up on new years eve cause i'm working 18.5 hours on new years day....but oh well, i'll deal with it cause i know how it is...i would much rather hear fireworks going off, then gun shots like i used to hear in Eastwood area.

Fireworks are legally sold 10 days prior to the holidays, which (I think) are 4th of July, Christmas and New Year's. Not 100% sure about Christmas. My parents own a stand, so you'd think I would know!!

They will be popping them till they run out. They stop selling them New Years Day. I guess since we had rain they are allowing them again.

Kids having fun. Don't worry, it's not a year long thing.

I heard them too. I forgot people pop them for NYE. I always just think of the 4th.

The fireworks don't bother me as much as the train. I wonder what the heck they're hauling 3 times a night between 2-4am.

Usually it's once a night but since November it's been 3 times at the minimum.
