City of Boerne Cancels July Fourth Fireworks Show

Fireworks exploding in the sky with "Fireworks show canceled" text.

The City of Boerne has canceled its Independence Day Fireworks Show due to public safety concerns related to ongoing dry weather conditions and the increased potential for fires.

“We do not make this decision lightly,” Communications Director Chris Shadrock said. “We know many people in our community look forward to this event each year, but we must continue to prioritize public safety, and reducing the risk of fire is paramount.”

While the Boerne area did receive a fair amount of rain this week, it has not been enough to reduce the fire danger down to a safe level.

The City would like to remind the public that is illegal to use combustible fireworks, including handheld sparklers, within the city limits. The discharge of fireworks in the city limits carries a fine of up to $200 plus court fees, per city ordinance.

Kendall County Disaster Declaration

Kendall County Judge Darrel L. Lux on Wednesday, June 29, 2022, signed a county-wide disaster declaration related to the risk of wildfires. The declaration sites the hot, dry conditions and risk of wildfires and prohibits the use of restricted fireworks in the unincorporated areas of the county. Violation of the declaration is punishable as a Class C misdemeanor by a fine of up to $500.

The declaration extends through the holiday weekend and could be extended past that. Also, please remember a burn ban remains in place throughout Kendall County.
