Any other day, residents can only set them off until 9 p.m.

Officials said that they have had incidents of fireworks hitting cars or people in the past, but no significant injuries. 

"We want everyone to have a safe New Year's Eve, enjoy bringing in the new year. But do it with caution, some common sense, and remember to be a good neighbor," said Lowndes Co. Public Information Director Paige Dukes.

Lowndes County officials also want to remind people that they must be at least 18-years-old to set off fireworks.
