Independence Day is right around the corner. If you plan on heading to the beach, the park or the riverfront to watch a fireworks show all you have to do is sit back and relax.
But if you’re planning on hosting your own show, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Fireworks that don’t leave the ground and don’t explode are legal. If you’re caught setting off anything other than that, you could face fines totaling $100 or more.
Not everyone is a fan of fireworks, so noise ordinances in your neighborhood should be a priority for you as well. So be mindful of your neighbors, whether it’s their pets, little kids or veterans.
Lastly, always clean fireworks remain up because they are harmful to the environment and stray or wild animals.
