Fireworks BAN

2021 Ban on Fireworks in Arlington

Fireworks are illegal within Arlington city limits. If you have, use, sell, trade or discharge fireworks in Arlington, you are breaking the law (except as permitted for public fireworks displays).

 This includes all types of fireworks, including consumer fireworks sold to the public as well as display and dangerous fireworks. Penalties for breaking the law include confiscation of fireworks and a fine, and potential jail time depending on the violation. 

Every year, fireworks injure thousands of people, cause millions of dollars in property damage, and drain public safety resources. Celebrate safely and avoid a ticket by leaving the fireworks to the professionals.
