Fireworks Allowed for New Years

Posted:

For the first time ever, you can start the new year off with a bang...literally.

North Dakota allows fireworks to be sold in time for New Years.

Under the new state law, fireworks can be sold from December 26 to January 1st.

As far as lighting the fireworks, the laws are still the same as in July.

In Bismarck, you still cannot light them off in city limits.

Shannon Knutson, co-owner of Memory Fireworks says they're excited to be able to be open during this holiday.

"We do this as a family business so we kind of all split up into the different locations and it just really kind of brings it together and it's a nice way, rather than just sitting at home and relaxing over the time off over Christmas, it's something fun to do as a family and it's kind of nice that it gets dark earlier than it does during the 4th of July season because we can light off a little earlier now," says Shannon Knutson, Co-Owner Memory Fireworks.

New Year's Eve fireworks in Mandan will be allowed from 5:00 p.m. on December 31st to 1:00 a.m. on January 1st.

Cities and counties have their own ordinances regarding fireworks, check with your local law enforcement agency to see if fireworks are allowed.
