[ARCHIVED] East Lansing Fireworks Ordinance Reminder for Community Members

EAST LANSING, Mich. — With the Fourth of July just around the corner, East Lansing community members and visitors are reminded that recent changes were made to the City of East Lansing’s fireworks ordinance to be in accordance with the State of Michigan’s new statute.

For the upcoming holiday, the use of commercial fireworks is permitted from June 29-July 4 from 11 a.m.-11:45 p.m. each day. Fireworks are only permitted on July 5 if it falls on a weekend. Igniting consumer fireworks at times not permitted under the City’s ordinance is a civil infraction, with a fine of $1,000 for each violation. Community members should also note that fireworks can only be ignited from personal property and it is illegal to discharge fireworks when intoxicated.

Community members can report the use of fireworks during times not permitted under the new ordinance by calling the East Lansing Police Department’s non-emergency phone number at (517) 351-4220, Option 2. If the sound is believed to be gunshots, community members should always call 911.

Community members can visit for additional information about the City’s fireworks ordinance and important safety tips from the East Lansing Fire Department.
