EPD: It's Too Early for Fireworks


Evansville Police are urging residents to NOT use fireworks this Memorial Day weekend. 

The City of Evansville has a very specific municipal code on fireworks, and they are illegal until June 29th.

On its Facebook page, the EPD says code violations include fines of $25 for a first offense, $100 for a second offense, and $250 for a third and subsequent offenses.

Legal fireworks are allowed from June 29th through July 9th, from sunset to two hours after sunset, but no later than 10:30 p.m.

An exception is the Fourth of July, when fireworks are okay from 10:00 a.m. until midnight.

Fireworks are also allowed on New Year’s Eve until 1:00 a.m. New Year’s Day.

The EPD urges everyone who celebrates with fireworks to be safe and courteous
