Fireworks officially go on sale at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, June 25 in Nebraska; this year, there are more than 700 retail stands licensed to sell.
In order for fireworks to be legal in our state they must be purchased only from the Nebraska licensed retailers. State law in Nebraska changed in 2010 to allow a broader selection of consumer fireworks, but there are still some restrictions. Some of the prohibited items include rockets with a stick attached, nighttime parachutes, all wire sparklers, fireworks that are shot into the air and after coming to the ground cause automatic ignition due to sufficient temperature, firecrackers that contain more than fifty milligrams of explosive composition.
The sale of fireworks ends at midnight on July 4.
