Larimer County May Ban Fireworks Sales
In news that, honestly, shouldn’t surprise anyone, you might have to seek your fireworks fix in other parts of Colorado, because Larimer County is considering banning them this year.
County commissioners are meeting on Tuesday to discuss two different options for fire restrictions this year.
Both options would prohibit open fires and the use of fireworks, including at public displays, unless an exemption is granted by the sheriff’s office. If approved, the restrictions would be in effect as of noon Tuesday and run through Aug. 6.

Fires would still be allowed in permanent fireplaces, such as those found in private residences and campgrounds. Camp stoves would also still be allowed, as long as they’re fueled by pressurized liquid or gas (i.e. NOT charcoal).
What will you do about fireworks this year if this ban goes through? Will you make the drive to a different county, or maybe just skip fireworks altogether?
