Consumer fireworks can be sold in Washington state starting noon Sunday, June 28, and ending Sunday, July 5, at 9 p.m.

According to a Monday news release from the Washington State Patrol, customers looking to purchase fireworks should check with their local county, fire and city jurisdictions to gain information on further restrictions or bans. 

“It is likely that many community fireworks displays will not be held this year due to social distancing requirements,” the release reads. “The State Fire Marshal’s Office (SMFO) encourages those who purchase fireworks this year to enjoy them safely and gather in compliance with public health guidelines within their individual counties.” 

A state license is required along with local permitting to operate a fireworks stand in Washington state, according to the release. The number of SMFO-issued licenses is down from last year.
