As America gears up to celebrate Independence Day this year, it’s important to know where you can legally set off consumer-grade fireworks in Oklahoma.
Use of fireworks like firecrackers is prohibited within city limits in the following Oklahoma City metro municipalities:
This excludes professional displays sanctioned by the city.
The following cities do allow personal firework use, but with restrictions:
Choctaw: Consumer fireworks are allowed July 1-5 between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. on private property, and on July 4 between 9 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. See here for more details and restrictions.
Guthrie: Adults over the age of 18 must get a permit from the City of Guthrie to use consumer fireworks from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 3-5. See here for more details and restrictions.
Mustang: Consumer fireworks are allowed June 27-July 3 between 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on July 4 between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. See here for more details and restrictions.
Many cities recommend residents attend public firework shows to celebrate the holiday safely.
Correction: An earlier version of this post listed bottle rockets as a consumer-grade firework. However, bottle rockets are prohibited by state law in Oklahoma, and not at the municiple level.
