Get ready to celebrate the Fourth of July! It is legal to use safe and sane fireworks in the City of Huntington Beach on the 4th of July from noon to 10 p.m. (see Municipal Code for requirements on places of discharge). With the passage of Measure T, the City Council wrote new regulations to help non-profit organizations raise money and for all residents to have a safe Fourth of July. Non-profit organizations may apply for the opportunity to operate one of 15 allowed fireworks stands to raise funds for their charitable cause.
