What Fireworks Can I Buy in Michigan?

Michigan is a great place to celebrate the Fourth of July. We have plenty of patriotic spirits, but we also have a variety of fireworks that can be purchased legally.

The first thing you need to know is that not all fireworks are legal in Michigan. According to the Michigan Fireworks Safety Act, "consumer fireworks" are defined as "any small firework device designed to be used primarily by the consumer." It includes sparklers, fountains, ground spinners, and cylindrical fountains. These types of fireworks are legal to use in Michigan without a permit.

However, there are also "Display Fireworks," which are much more powerful and can only be used by professionals with a valid permit.

According to the Michigan Fireworks Safety Act, "Display fireworks" means any pyrotechnic device designed to produce visible or audible effects by combustion, deflagration, or detonation. This includes items such as aerial shells, mortars, and mines. If you want to use these types of fireworks, you must have a permit from the local fire department.
