As the July 4th holiday approaches, Cedar Falls Public Safety would like to remind citizens of Cedar Falls ordinance #16-24 regarding fireworks. The ordinance does allow for the use of sparklers, snakes, and other novelty fireworks. Firecrackers, bottle rockets, and Class I / Class II fireworks are not permitted at any time in the city.
The state of Iowa regulates the licensing and sale of fireworks in Cedar Falls. Vendors that sell fireworks in a permanent building may do so from June 1 – July 8, or from June 13 – July 8 if selling from a temporary structure.
