Due to legislation passed in Georgia, it is now legal to use fireworks year around in the state of Georgia. You can legally use fireworks between the hours of 10 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on July 3rd and July 4th. It is illegal to use fireworks within 100 yards of places such as gas stations, jails, nursing homes, and a host of other sites listed on Georgia.gov. Please remember to be safe and monitor your kids while using fireworks. Fireworks like sparklers seem harmless to most. However, they have the potential to cause serious injury.
No matter if you plan to purchase fireworks for the 4th of July from stores such as Phantom Fireworks or Jake’s Fireworks or visit firework shows there is plenty of fun to be had for the holiday. If you plan to use fireworks at home, be courteous to your neighbors. Try not to use fireworks that will end up in your neighbor yard. Also, clean up the debris in your yard or street when done.
