Fireworks that are not prohibited under state or federal law and are considered consumer fireworks as defined under federal law and regulations (27C.F.R 555.11) may be sold between June 28 and July 5 of each year, subject to provisions. Any person desiring to sell fireworks must obtain a permit. Fireworks may only be discharged upon private property with the consent of the property owner and between the hours of 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. on July 1-3 and from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. on July 4 and at no other time or date.
