Has your town banned fireworks due to fire conditions?

With it so dry and hot, I wonder how many towns are cancelling fireworks?

I don't think that it's legal to buy them here anyway, even though we always get a TON of rain (I live in Maryland), but they probably would've banned them this year anyway if they weren't already illegal. My friends and I always have to go out of state to buy ours

Fireworks are illegal for laypeople in Illinois. You can't buy anything other than smoke bombs and sparklers. A lot of towns and cities do their own big displays, though.

We live in an unincorporated area outside Chicago. The village we are affiliated with doesn't do a firework display, but other closer towns do. None have cancelled yet. There was only one year they canceled due to dry weather, a few years ago. But, they have threatened to a number of times.

When I was a kid this never happened Climate Change is real and we're seeing it increase every day.

nope not here in NY. We will be lighting up the sky. Though I'm sure that places like Colorado springs are at the very least advising against them this year

Ohio rarely does things like that at least in the Northern part. That might be because of the lake though. Like P'Gell's state you can only buy smoke bombs and sparklers here, but the surrounding states you can buy real fireworks. So, everyone I know travels out of state buys as much as they can and brings them home to sell.

They're 'illegal' here the same way that marijuana is 'illegal' here... Which means you can still buy them at the supermarket. They just say "Now you can't set them off this year, but you can buy them for next year *wink**wink*" The cops don't really care, though, unless you have the really big ones or you set your house on fire or something.

Texas hasn't gotten much rain in the last month or so but my hometown is still going to allow fireworks. I was shocked but I guess that just means more work for the volunteer fire department.

I'm on the east coast so we're actually getting a normal amount of rain.

They haven't yet but I wouldn't be surprised if they do.

They're illegal here anyway, which is a good thing due to how dry it is. We've got fire hazard warnings this week due to the dry and windy conditions.

I do fondly remember setting them off growing up.

Fireworks are generally illegal in most urban areas of CA - but organized displays are fairly common at various venues like Sea World and Disneyland.

What torques me off are the environmental wackos that are trying to stop 4th of July fireworks because of the pollution.

Life cannot be without risk or perfectly clean - go stick your head under your pillow until we're done having some fun!

According to what I just read on my city's website, apparently fireworks aren't part of our burn ban like I originally thought they were.
