FIREWORKS AND ILLINOIS LAW

(OLNEY/NEWTON) A reminder that Illinois state law makes it unlawful for the public, without a proper permit, to explode any display fireworks, flame effects, or consumer fireworks. While the City of Olney and other regional communities receive a large number of complaints about this each year, violators in Olney can be fined not less than $75 and no more than $750 per violation. The use of sparklers, party poppers, and snappers however, are not considered to be consumer fireworks. With the proper permit and training, the Richland County Farm & Fair Association will again this year be setting off a proper display of fireworks Monday night in the Olney City Park. There are several other regional displays scheduled for this holiday weekend. To view the list, go to our station’s websites, to the 2022 Fireworks Displays tab, at freedom929.com or at 1035theeagle.com.
