I was awakened by fireworks last night.  Ever wonder what the law on fireworks is in Kalamazoo?  I have the info below.

According to ecode360.com you could get a $500 fine for not following one of the following laws in the city of Kalamazoo,

§ 15-30Consumer fireworks prohibitions.

[Amended 7-1-2013 by Ord. No. 1909]

A. 

A person shall not ignite, discharge or use consumer fireworks except during permitted hours on the day preceding, the day of, or the day after a national holiday.

B. 

No person shall ignite, discharge or use consumer fireworks between the hours of 12 midnight and 8:00 a.m. of the day preceding, the day of, or the day after a national holiday, except that on New Year’s Day no person shall ignite, discharge or use consumer fireworks between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.

C. 

No person shall ignite, discharge or use consumer fireworks on public property, school property, church property or the property of another person without that organization’s or person’s express permission to use consumer fireworks on those premises.
 

D. 

Consumer fireworks shall not be sold to a minor.
In fact, Michigan State law takes it a step further according to DetroitNews.com,
Michigan’s law also forbids people from using fireworks while intoxicated or under the influence of a controlled substance. Minors may not purchase fireworks, though in some municipalities they cannot use them or require adult supervision.
In summary, you can only legally use fireworks on July 3rd, 4th and 5th between 8am-Midnight.  You must be sober and over 18.
