Fourth of July fireworks are a great way to kick off your summer with friends and loved ones. While some people like to take matters into their own hands, and plan their own firewoks display,according to Ohio’s Fireworks Law:
The law prohibits the sale and purchase of display and exhibitor fireworks, except by and to licensees. And only licensed professionals may legally discharge or explode them in the state. Out-of-state purchasers must transport them out of state, but the deadline for doing so is unclear.
In addition to legal issues, setting off your own fireworks could present many safety issues as well. Which is why we at FDS want to suggest checking out one of our local neighborhood’s fireworks this year.
This year the majority of Cleveland-Area communities are hosting fireworks on the fourth, but there are a handful of communities hosting fireworks a few days before or after the holiday.
Below is a partial listing of some of the Cleveland’s neighborhood firework shows. If your neighborhood is not listed or to find the closest firework show to you please visit here.
