Fireworks in Grays Harbor; Where, When, and How

June 23, 2014

State Fire Marshal Charles Duffy announced that the number of retail fireworks stand licenses issued in 2014 was up 5%, or 46 licenses, from last year. A state license is required before a city or county can issue a permit to operate a fireworks stand in Washington.

Duffy reminds residents that the purchase of fireworks over the internet is illegal. In Washington, fireworks must be purchased from a licensed retail fireworks stand between June 28 and July 5. Orders for fireworks cannot be placed over the internet or posted on websites such as Craigslist.

A number of city and counties have restricted or banned the sale and discharge of fireworks.
