July 4th is just around the corner and that means Fireworks! Once again I bring you the fireworks app. You can view cities in LA, Orange, and Ventura County that allow the sale and use of fireworks. Included are days and times when fireworks will be sold and when you can light them up, as well as links to city web sites and telephone numbers. Data was collected from municipal codes, web sites, and/or contacting each city.
This year the City of Anaheim and the City of Huntington Beach have been added to the map. Through measures last year, voters decided to allow fireworks to be sold and used within their borders. Congratulations to them and enjoy the app!
Any chance of modifying the polygon for Anaheim to exclude the area where fireworks are not allowed?

Hi Reid. I won’t change the city boundaries in the map, but your comment will link those interested in your map. I will however change the legend from “Fireworks Allowed” to “Cities Allowing Fireworks”. Also in the data for Anaheim, it states “prohibited SE of the 91 & 55 freeways, see web site for firework zone map”.
So most of LA County doesn’t allow fireworks? Wow. It’s firework-crazy here in southeast LA County come July 4.
Yes, only 40 cities out of 88 in LA County. Unincorporated areas don’t allow the sale and use of fireworks either.
