ALL Personal Fireworks Are Banned In Colorado, This Includes You Fort Collins

I keep running into people having conversations about what fireworks are legal and which ones aren’t. In the past it was a tricky issue because it depended on what county, and what city, and what kind of firework was in question. But for 2012 it’s easy.

ALL fireworks, including sparklers and snakes, are illegal to sell, possess, or use in the city of Fort Collins and Larimer County or for use in the state of Colorado.

According to FCgov.com, and Poudre Fire Authority, fines for first-time offenses can be as high as $1,000, and with the number of people that have been affected by the wildfires burning up in our state right now you can bet that a lot more people will be more apt to call police and report you if you’re dumb enough to light some off.

I know I’ll be reporting any fireworks I see in the next few weeks. I don’t care if I sound like a crotchety old man, our state is covered in fires right now and I’m not going to stand by and watch some idiot that thinks he’s above the law start another one.

If you do want to see some fireworks there will still be public displays put on by professionals to ring in Independence Day. (Fort Collins will have their annual display at City Park.)
