Reminder: Fireworks are illegal in Arlington

As we look forward to the July 4th holiday, we’re reminding Arlington residents and visitors that all fireworks are illegal within city limits.  This is the second year of this ban on fireworks. 

People who have, use, sell, trade or discharge fireworks inside the city are breaking the law. Leading up to and through the holiday, Arlington Police will be conducting extra patrols.  If you are caught breaking the law, you will be fined $257 and fireworks will be confiscated.

Residents are encouraged to report illegal fireworks by calling the non-emergency line at 425-407-3999. To keep emergency phone lines open, please do not call 911 unless there is an immediate threat to life or property. Be patient as Arlington Police are dispatched to respond. 

Only public displays approved by the Fire Marshal are allowed.  We encourage residents to view the public fireworks display at Quake Park on July 4 at 10:00 p.m.
