(Sedgwick County, Kan.) –With fireworks sales starting Thursday, June 27, Sedgwick County Fire District #1 (SCFD #1) reminds residents that each city determines its own rules when fireworks can be discharged and what kinds are allowed. For example, some aerial fireworks that are legal in the City of Maize are NOT allowed in other cities in Sedgwick County. Residents are encouraged to buy fireworks where they plan to discharge them. Visit 2024 Firework Sales and Discharge Dates | Sedgwick County, Kansas for a list of cities and dates to legally buy and shoot fireworks, or check with the municipality for specific fireworks regulations.
