    Please remember – Consumer fireworks are allowed the day before, the day of, and the day after a national holiday. Many cities have ordinances making the use of consumer fireworks illegal at all other times. This weekend is NOT the 3rd, 4th, or 5th.

    Think it is stupid that a city can have there fireworks 3-5 days before the 4th but individuals can’. The only reason a city can do it like Grand Rapids probably on Saturday is because it will make the city money people will come and go to the bars/restaurant’s etc before and after the fireworks but because a city isn’t making money when individuals shoot them off and the old people want there peace and quiet no one is allowed to shoot them that is kind of messed up
