Looking for fireworks on NYE in San Antonio? Here's where it's at!

San Antonio has a burn ban in effect for Bexar, Guadalupe, Kendall, Medina, Uvalde and Wilson counties.  It's a bummer but it's necessary.  Without any rain for quite awhile such dry conditions can cause multiple, out of control fires.  The only county surrounding San Antonio that is still selling fireworks is Atascosa County.  Atascosa still has fireworks for sale minus the aerial ones which have been banned. 

If you want to see fireworks on New Years Eve and are in San Antonio, head downtown and leave it up to the professionals.  They put on quite a show right at midnight and it's spectacular!  Celebrate San Antonio, the city's official New Year's Eve celebration, will have its 15-minute Valero Fireworks Extravaganza over the Tower of the Americas at the stroke of midnight.  250,000 people are expected to be downtown to celebrate and watch the show.
