Fireworks Go on Sale Tuesday

KSAL StaffJune 25, 2017
Cory Bird points out the location of fireworks that the customer's asked for.

For the seventh year in a row, most fireworks in Salina will be legal. Fireworks will go on sale in the City of Salina and in Saline County beginning on Tuesday.

Fireworks can be discharged in Saline County the day they go on sale, Tuesday June 27th, between 8 a.m. and midnight through July 5th.

While they will be on sale in the City of Salina beginning Tuesday, they can only be discharged in the city on July 3rd and July 4 between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m.

Fireworks cannot be discharged in parks, or on other public property. They can only be be discharged on private property. It is unlawful for a minor to possess and use fireworks without adult supervision.

Bottle rockets are not legal, nor are sky lanterns. A sky lantern, also known as Kongming lantern or Chinese lantern, is essentially a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended. In recent years there has been growing concern about their potential to cause crop or building fires.

Both the Salina Police Department and the Salina Fire Department can issue firework citations, as can the Saline County Sheriff’s Office.

The sale, storage, and discharge of fireworks was prohibited in Salina beginning in December of 1965. In 1987 the ban was partially lifted, and things like snakes, poppers, and smoke devices were allowed.

In 1981 Saline County also banned fireworks. That ban was rescinded in 2009.
