Fireworks are only allowed in the City of Flint immediately before and after major holidays

According to the City of Flint fireworks ordinance, fireworks are only allowed on the day before, the day of, and the day after major holidays. Fireworks are not allowed between the hours of midnight and 8 a.m. State law also permits fireworks from June 29 to July 2, from 11 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.

Beginning Saturday, July 6, fireworks will not be allowed in the City of Flint until the Labor Day holiday.

Violation of the City’s fireworks ordinance is punishable by a $500 fine and seizure of fireworks.

Flint’s Code of Ordinances also states that, “A person shall not ignite, discharge, or use consumer fireworks on public property, school property, church property, or the property of another person without the organization’s or person’s express permission to use consumer fireworks on those premises.”

Consumer fireworks are defined as, “devices that are designed to produce visible effects by combustion.” The regulations do not apply to “low-impact” or “novelty” fireworks, which are often handheld or stay on the ground, such as smoke devices, sparklers, snappers, and snakes.
