Let’s Talk Fireworks

Only licensed and insured professional firework displays are permitted — such as our July 3 show in Penn Meadows Park — in North Liberty city limits.

The local sale of fireworks, which is allowed as required by state law, can lead to confusion because cities still set local rules for the use of consumer fireworks, and the North Liberty City Council has declined to legalize their use within city limits, so consumer fireworks are prohibited. Novelty fireworks, including sparklers and similar items, remain legal to use. Every year, North Liberty and other jurisdictions receive complaints from residents about their neighbors using fireworks. The most effective deterrent is residents talking to their neighbors who are using fireworks illegally. Additionally, reports can also be made to countywide dispatch at (319) 356-6800. Those who use fireworks without permits can face hundred of dollars in fines.

Local professional displays include:

Information about permits for the use or sale of fireworks is available from the North Liberty Fire Department.
