Sparklers, snakes, bottle rockets and all other popular fireworks are included in the ban, which applies to all private and public property in Oklahoma City, including parks, lakes and areas along the Oklahoma River.
“Fireworks are a serious safety hazard to people and property and should be left to professional shows,” added Chief Kelley.
Violators of the City’s fireworks ordinances are subject to a fine of $500, confiscation of fireworks, and a possible jail sentence.
