Fireworks - Michigan State Law

Lincoln Park residents who plan on setting off fireworks are responsible for being aware which days are legal to do so, as well as the start and end times.    We ask that you please use due caution when lighting legal fireworks, keeping a safe distance, and being extra cautious with small children.

Also, please  be mindful of the sensitivities of other residents, pets and neighbors.  Veterans and military support organizations emphasize that fireworks can be particularly traumatic for military and veterans suffering 
with post-traumatic stress disorder. If you choose to use fireworks, please adhere to the ordinance and use common courtesies, such as: 

  • Informing neighbors in advance of your fireworks plans.
  • Limiting the frequency of your use during those acceptable usage hours.
  • Cleaning up all debris resulting from your fireworks.
