Fireworks ban

Effective January 2017, fireworks are illegal within Marysville city limits.

If you have, use, sell, trade or discharge fireworks in Marysville, you are breaking the law (except as permitted for public fireworks displays).

This includes all types of fireworks, including consumer fireworks sold to the public as well as display and dangerous fireworks.

Penalties for breaking the law include confiscation of fireworks and a fine, and potential jail time depending on the violation.

In a November 2015 advisory vote, 59 percent of Marysville voters favored a fireworks ban.

Every year, fireworks injure thousands of people, cause millions of dollars in property damage, and drain public safety resources. Celebrate safely and avoid a ticket by leaving the fireworks to the professionals.
