When Is It Legal to Light Fireworks in Florida

But the law explicitly prohibits cities and HOAs from creating new rules to prevent residents from enjoying fireworks holidays. Florida allows fireworks that are held by hand or ground and do not explode, according to the American Pyrotechnics Association. Permitted fireworks must not contain more than 100 grams of the chemical compound that creates sparks when burned, the association said. Sometimes fireworks go off with a delayed start. You could get hurt if a firecracker explodes while you`re trying to light it again. Delayed starts can also cause fires if the tip is pointed at your home, a tree, or something else.
