Ohio Firework Laws and Regulations 

While the sale and use of certain types of fireworks are legal in Ohio, there are strict rules that must be followed to ensure safety and compliance with the law. From permissible dates and times to age restrictions and permissible types of fireworks, navigating Ohio’s fireworks laws can be a bit overwhelming. So, read on to learn everything you need to know about Ohio’s fireworks laws. 

Overview of Ohio’s Firework Laws and Regulations 

Ohio’s fireworks laws are outlined in the Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 3743. Under Ohio law, fireworks are divided into two categories: “consumer fireworks” and “novelty and trick fireworks.” 

Consumer fireworks are defined as “any fireworks that are designed primarily to produce visible or audible effects by combustion, that comply with the construction, chemical composition, and labeling regulations of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, and that are listed in the United States Department of Transportation’s Hazardous Materials Regulations.” Some examples of consumer fireworks include firecrackers, bottle rockets, and Roman candles. 

Novelty and trick fireworks, on the other hand, are defined as “any fireworks that are not classified as consumer fireworks and are designed to produce audible or visual effects.” Examples of novelty and trick fireworks include sparklers, smoke bombs, and party poppers. 

It’s important to note that while novelty and trick fireworks are legal in Ohio, some cities and municipalities have their own laws and regulations regarding their use. Be sure to check with your local government before using novelty and trick fireworks. 

Types of Permissible Fireworks in Ohio 

All fireworks are legal in the state, but there are certain day and time restrictions: 

  • July 3, 4, and 5, and the weekends immediately before and after (4 p.m.-11 p.m.) 
  • Labor Day weekend (4 p.m.-11 p.m.) 
  • Diwali (4 p.m.-11 p.m.)

  • Cinco de Mayo (4 p.m.-11 p.m.) 
  • Memorial Day weekend (4 p.m.-11 p.m.) 
  • Juneteenth (4 p.m.-11 p.m.) 

Under Ohio law, only certain types of consumer fireworks are legal in the state throughout the year. These permissible fireworks include: 

  • cylindrical fountains 
  • cone fountains 
  • sparklers 
  • novelties 
  • ground spinners 
  • smoke devices 
  • snakes 
  • glow worms 
  • trick noisemakers 
  • party poppers 
  • snappers 
  • toy smoke devices 

It’s important to note that while these types of fireworks are legal in Ohio, they must be purchased from a licensed fireworks vendor. Purchasing fireworks from an unlicensed vendor is illegal and can result in fines and penalties. 

Age Restrictions for Purchasing and Using Fireworks in Ohio 

In Ohio, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to purchase or use consumer fireworks. Additionally, anyone under the age of 18 must have adult supervision when using consumer fireworks. This means that if you are planning a fireworks display for your children, you must be present and supervising at all times. 

It’s also important to note that if you are purchasing fireworks from a licensed vendor, you may be required to show proof of age before making a purchase. This is to ensure that fireworks are not being sold to minors.

Safety Guidelines for Using Fireworks in Ohio 

Using fireworks can be dangerous, so it’s important to follow safety guidelines to prevent injury and property damage. Here are some safety guidelines to keep in mind when using fireworks in Ohio: 

  • Always read and follow the instructions on the fireworks packaging. 
  • Only use fireworks in a clear, open area away from buildings, trees, and other flammable objects. 
  • Keep a bucket of water or a hose nearby in case of a fire. 
  • Never try to relight a firework that didn’t go off. 
  • Never point or throw fireworks at another person. 
  • Keep a safe distance from fireworks while they are being lit. 
  • If a firework malfunctions, wait at least 15 minutes before approaching it. 

Following these safety guidelines can help ensure a safe and enjoyable fireworks display.

Penalties for Violating Ohio’s Firework Laws and Regulations 

Violating Ohio’s fireworks laws and regulations can result in fines and penalties. The penalty for violating Ohio’s fireworks laws is a first-degree misdemeanor, which can result in a maximum fine of $1,000 and up to six months in jail. Additionally, if fireworks are used negligently and cause property damage or injury, the person responsible may be held liable for damages.
