The legal sale and discharge period for consumer fireworks in Washington begins Sunday, unless a city or county has enacted a stricter fireworks-related ordinance, the Washington Fire Marshal’s Office announced this week. The period ends July 5 at 11 p.m.
A state license is required along with a local permit to operate a fireworks stand in Washington. The Washington State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) issued 633 retail fireworks stand licenses in 2020; this number is down from last year’s total of 698.
“The SFMO encourages those who purchase fireworks this year to enjoy them safely and gather in compliance with public health guidelines within their individual counties,” according to a news release.
