Let's Get Drunk & Blow Stuff Up

Okay, in reality, there’s very little you can legally blow up in DC on the Fourth. All that’s legal are are sparklers less than 20 inches, torches, box fire, fountains, cones, dip sticks, non-poisonous snakes, paper novelty items, colored lights, and paper caps. Of course, this doesn’t stop folks from crossing state lines to buy more explosive fireworks or making a cash deal with one of the many “salesmen” selling Fourth of July fun out of the trunk of his car.

If you decide to go the more adventurous — and illegal — route, be aware that MPD is dedicating teams to putting a stop to illegal fireworks displays this year. Their language thus far seems to indicate that they’re going to be cracking down this year — but only time will tell if that’s actually the case. MPD encourages you to call 911 immediately if you see illegal fireworks being set off in your neighborhood.

Many Ward 6 residents will be happy to learn that there are no fireworks stands in Ward 6 this year. The complete map of legal fireworks vendors in the District can be found here.
