The Houston Astros and Houston Fire Department are scheduled to hold a massive fireworks show on the coast on Monday.
The fireworks show, scheduled for 9 p.m.
ET on Houston’s Olympic Stadium, will be the second-largest of the year after the Houston Rockets’ Super Bowl LI celebration, according to ABC News.
The fireworks will also be the largest in the city’s history.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has declared a state of emergency in the area, meaning the city can’t be lit up unless it is in lockdown mode.
Houston police officers are also deploying in the wake of the explosion, as is the National Guard.
The event is part of the citys plan to keep the fireworks season flowing in a bid to stay afloat in a world-wide pandemic that has killed an estimated 10 million people and displaced tens of millions of people, according.
More than 10,000 Houston-area schools will be closed for the next week as a precautionary measure.
The citys Fire Department has already issued a citywide curfew that has resulted in several arrests.
