Everyone loves to see a spectacular firework display and it is even more fun to have your own fireworks during special occasions. However, fireworks are not legal to buy or use by residents in some areas of the country. At Alamo Fireworks, we respect the local and state laws that prohibit fireworks and only sell our quality products in areas that it is legal to do so. Here is more information on where you can enjoy our products—legally!
Different States, Different Laws
Each state has different laws regarding fireworks. In some states, most fireworks that are sold commercially for public use can be bought and used legally. Others may only allow certain types of fireworks to be sold or used during certain times of the year. The most common restriction is allowing the sale and use of fireworks only during the weeks surrounding the Fourth of July holiday.
At Alamo Fireworks, we have the majority of our retail stores in Texas. We also have stores in Alabama, Nevada and New Hampshire. However, we do ship our products through online ordering to most states in the country. The only states we are not allowed to ship to are: Alaska, California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Idaho, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon and Vermont.
What Fireworks are Legal for Your Area?
It is important to note that even if fireworks can be shipped to your state, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are legal in your town or that all our products are legal where you live. We have made an effort to help our online customers stay within the legal parameters by limiting the selection they can order from based on the state in which they live. When ordering on our website, select the state where you live to begin shopping. Only items that are legal to buy in your state will be available for shipping to your home state. This feature makes it easier for you to order the fantastic fireworks you want while still adhering to the laws of your state.
To find out what the laws are regarding fireworks in your state and town, contact your local fire officials. It is very common for fireworks to be legal in most areas of a state, yet a few towns or districts may have ordinances restricting fireworks completely or only allowing them on certain dates. It is important to always follow the laws regarding the purchase and use of fireworks in your area, as well as using the proper safety precautions.
