Are Fireworks Legal in Memphis?

Question: Are Fireworks Legal in Memphis?
Answer: It is illegal to ignite fireworks anywhere in Shelby County without a permit. This includes all of the municipalities within the county: Memphis, Bartlett, Germantown, Millington, Collierville, Arlington, and Lakeland. It is not illegal, however, to purchase or possess fireworks and many people flock to the county lines to purchase fireworks for the 4th of July and New Year's Eve.

If you want to stay out of trouble and keep your neighbors happy, leave the fireworks to the professionals and check out one of the many fireworks displays that go on all over the Mid-South.
