Usually we go out to the big fireworks show on July 4th and watch the professionals light up the night sky for us. This year however, we decided to host our own party at home, inviting friends and family over to join in on the fun. We have started the party planning and were not too surprised to learn the following rules and regulations when it comes to purchasing and owning fireworks.

  • Only fireworks categorized as “Safe and Sane” can be purchased by the public. Safe and Sane fireworks are small sparklers and fuses, for example.
  • “Dangerous” fireworks are most fireworks like torpedoes, rockets, and large sparklers and these are not allowed to be sold to the public.
  • Safe and Sane fireworks may only be purchased between noon on June 28th and noon on July 6th...

Perhaps the best thing about 4th of July this year is that it falls on a Monday, which means it is a 3-day weekend. This allows many people to go out of town and celebrate.

In San Francisco, the legal BAC is 0.08%; the legal limit in other states may be higher or lower. In San Francisco, many parks and beaches do not allow open alcohol containers, which may be different for other states...

Prepping for your 4th of July should take more effort than you think. You have already planned who you are hanging out with, where you will be, and what you are grubbing on, but do not forget about:

  • Planning transportation – Do not drink and drive. Use Uber, Lyft, or designate a sober driver. Remember the legal alcohol limit in San Francisco is 0.08% but even if you are under that, it is best not to get behind the wheel anyway.
  • Considering checkpoints – It is a 3-day weekend that will involve more alcohol for most people. There will be more checkpoints.
  • Having the right fireworks – if you are going to be at home and want to have your own small fireworks, fine, but make sure they are certified Safe and Sane fireworks, not Dangerous fireworks...
