Before using fireworks to celebrate summer holidays, you’ll want to make sure you aren’t breaking local laws. A City ordinance sets specific times and days for the use of “consumer fireworks”. These are fireworks that shoot into the sky for a large visual effect. 

  • When it comes to Memorial Day, consumer fireworks are only allowed the Saturday and Sunday before Memorial Day from 11 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. This means these fireworks are not allowed on Memorial Day. 
  • For Independence Day, consumer fireworks are permitted during the hours of 11 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. from June 30 to July 4. 
  • These fireworks are allowed the Saturday and Sunday before Labor Day from 11 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. This means consumer fireworks are not permitted on Labor Day. 

The Jackson Police Department asks residents to call 911 for fireworks violations.  Officers advise residents to be aware of when fireworks are allowed so the dispatch center is not overwhelmed with fireworks calls.  The ordinance also states that fireworks may be seized by an officer as part of a violation, and offenders could face a civil fine of $1,000 for violating the ordinance. Minors under 18 years old are not allowed to possess consumer fireworks. 

There are no restrictions for using small ground fireworks and sparklers.
