The 4th of July is right around the corner and the city is preparing and eager for this year's Loggerodeo Parade and all of the surrounding events. One event to look forward to is the aerial fireworks show at Riverfront Park the night of the 4th.
Which, this is a reminder that the Fireworks Laws are the same every year and can be simply stated, “If it goes up or blows up, it’s illegal” inside the city limits of Sedro-Woolley. Here are a few things to keep in mind this year when it comes to fireworks:
• Firecrackers and bottle rockets are always illegal in the City of Sedro-Woolley.
•Sparklers and other firework displays that don't go up or go "boom!" are fun and allowed.
• Aerial displays in neighborhoods are not as grand, tend to set things on fire, and annoy the neighbors (particularly neighboring Vets with PTSD), scare pets, and attract the Police. Instead go watch them at the park.
• If you decide to set off illegal explosives in your neighborhood, expect to lose all of your fireworks and receive a Notice of Infraction from the Police.
• We already know that you went to your favorite fireworks stand (probably in town) and bought all of these explosives that are illegal, and now you will have no where to set them off...they are still illegal in town.
Please be safe and considerate, and have a great fourth.
