Fireworks are a part of many people's 4th of July celebrations, whether it's watching a professional show or lighting some off in the neighborhood. Here's what's scheduled in our area and what is legally allowed.
When it comes to lighting your own fireworks, there are rules to follow in many communities.
The city of Ann Arbor has an ordinance which only allows citizens to light fireworks on July 3rd until the 5th. Use is only permitted from 8am thought 11:59 on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th and is prohibited on pubic property including parks, school and church property. Fireworks safety guidelines are posted on the Ann Arbor Fire Department's web page.
