For years I have heard that fireworks are illegal in the city limits of Quincy, but that is not a true statement. Some fireworks are legal and others aren't.

To clear it up, here is the list of fireworks that are legal in Quincy's city limits.

  • Snakes
  • Smoke Bombs
  • Sparklers
  • Party Poppers
  • Snappers

The fireworks that are NOT legal are

  • Firecrackers
  • Bottle rockets
  • Cones
  • Roman candles
  • Sky lanterns/aerial luminaries

Anyone violating the state statute or city ordinance concerning fireworks is subject to a citation and fine.
