New Laws Limit Use of Fireworks in Michigan [VIDEO]
Memorial Day Weekend means the beginning of fireworks season in Michigan but if you're tired of listening to your neighbors lighting up the sky in the wee hours of the morning, there's some good news.
A new Michigan law which restricts the use of fireworks is now in effect.
It's important to note that setting off fireworks on Memorial Day itself -- Monday, May 27 -- is not permitted.
Michigan residents can set off fireworks on the Saturday and Sunday preceding the holiday until 11:45 pm.
Fireworks are also permitted until 11:45 pm from June 29th through July 4th, and on July 5th if that day falls on a Friday or Saturday. (It does this year.)
The same rules will apply for Labor Day Weekend; Saturday and Sunday preceding the holiday until 11:45 pm, but not on the holiday itself.
According to Pro Fireworks owner Reed Miller who spoke to WJBK about the new law, the legal times for setting off fireworks should print on your receipt when you purchase your fireworks.
