Several small firework stands on the east side of Lake Lavon are getting noticed because customers can buy and set off their fireworks all in one place.
At Mr. Big's fireworks stand in rural Collin County, the biggest draw may not be all the pop, crack and sizzle.
Rather, it's the 21 acres behind the stand where people can actually set the fireworks off, legally.
"It's a blast. I mean, where else can you go out and fire fireworks anymore? No where," says Mark Manning, customer.
It's the reason Nate Bullard bought the unincorporated piece of property east of Lake Lavon three years ago.
11-year-old Hank Schurig's been itching to come back here since last July 4th.
"I had so much fun, 'cause everytime you fired one it just kind of popped back your arm," said Hank Schurig.
His mother, Connie, feels good about it for an entirely different reason.
"We like it, because we see the fire department out here. We see the police department out here. We feel safe as a family," said Connie Schurig.
