Grand Rapids Fireworks Laws

ThinkStock

‘Tis the season for me to get irritated by the people in my neighborhood who have been shooting off fireworks and scaring my dog for the past two weeks.

The upside is, today, tomorrow, and Saturday are days that it is actually LEGAL to shoot off fireworks within the city limits. Not sure what your rights are when it comes to fireworks? Well, we found the info for you. 

Here’s when you legally can shoot off fireworks within the city ofGrand Rapids:

  • 8 a.m. to midnight Thursday, July 3
  • 8 a.m. to midnight Friday, July 4
  • 8 a.m. to midnight Saturday, July 5

Michigan state law in 2012 lifted a ban on “consumer fireworks,” the loud ones like firecrackers and ones that fly up into the air like bottle rockets.

So basically, if you live within the city of Grand Rapids it’s not legal to use loud, more powerful fireworks between midnight and 8 a.m.Thursday, Friday and Saturday. (Things like snakes and sparklers are still okay.)

Fireworks will be prohibited on Sunday because it doesn’t fall within the legal window (the day before the holiday, the holiday itself, and the day after the holiday.)

The fine for breaking the laws associated with fireworks and getting caught is $500.
