This year the skies over National Parks in Michigan will not be lighting up

The law that says you can't shoot off fireworks at National Parks this July 4th, Mlive is reporting that the U.S. Forest Service has a reminder for all of us...

The U.S. Forest Service is reminding the public that fireworks and other pyrotechnic devices are not allowed within any national forest.

Smokey the bear would not like you breaking the rules as just like the parks!

Michigan National Parks Include...

On top of the firework ban at The Huron-Manistee National Forests, they are urging  visitors to...

  • - Ensure that cigarettes, cigars, and tobacco pipes are fully extinguished when not in use
  • - Wait for lighting and heating devices to cool before refueling them
  • - Properly install and maintain spark arresting devices on all internal combustion engines, including those found in all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and motorcycles.

Wherever you family and friends decided to set up camp the advice above is something we should all take to heart.
