I'm talking about the ones you can set off in front of your house. Not sure if that's legal here or not and I tried googling it and couldn't find the answer.

Also, anyone know of 4th of July activities happening during the day? We have plans for the evening, but other places we've lived there have been all day activities, as well. Is there anything like that here?

Thanks!

No fireworks/firecrackers in AZ, with the exception of small noisemakers (those things you throw on the ground that pop) and the little confetti bottles and such.

There is currently legislation in the works I believe to unban sparklers as well.

Anything that shoots up (bottle rockets, roman candles, things that go up and make colors, etc), makes fire, or the ground based ones that use rockets to make them spin are illegal.

Don't y'all just hate being under authority?

Actually, in this case is doesn't bother me... the landscape's a little too flammable to let everyone light stuff off everywhere, but that still won't stop people.

On an unrelated fireworks note... in PA, they have several huge fireworks stores (like grocery store sized stores). The kicker is, you have to show ID, and PA residents are not allowed to buy fireworks. But as a Marylander, I was okay to buy them even though fireworks are illegal in MD. Good stuff.

Sounds like the countless "only in America!" examples...

Please tell me at least a Marylander can use the fireworks in PA... which doesn't make sense since PA's own residents can't buy them... OK, I give up! WHOM exactly do these stores cater to and WHY are they there?!

You do know it's against the law for women to wear pants in Tucson, don't you?!

Also, you can not walk your goldfish on the sidewalk, and your horse must have taillights.

I think they cater to chicks like me who like explosives and just happened to pass by their store on the way home from Michigan. So, I was a little illegal and took a few boxes home. It was a lot of fun setting them off at a friend's party too.

And, I guess I'm in trouble with the pants thing.
