California Friday: Fireworks 2016!

Our next stop for California Friday is actually many locations.  July 4th will be here soon and that means Fireworks!  The fireworks app I have used for the past few years has been updated once again.  This year I added Riverside County.  If you love fireworks and want to find out where you can legally buy and shoot them off in SoCal, check out the app!

You can view cities in LA, Orange, Ventura, and Riverside County that allow the sale and discharge 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.  Enjoy!


For a list of 296 communities permitting state-approved fireworks in California, check out the California Fireworks Newswire website.
