The City of Bowling Green has had a longstanding Ordinance banning the sale of and discharge of fireworks. Despite the new state law, going into effect this weekend, it is illegal to discharge or shoot off consumer-grade fireworks in the City of Bowling Green.
Please note: The new state law does NOT supersede the City’s local law.
“The safety of our residents and the prevention of fire is our top priority,” said Bowling Green Fire Chief Bill Moorman. “Fireworks can be very dangerous and should be left to the professionals.”
Residents are encouraged to review the City’s Fireworks Ordinance 93.40. Ignoring this Ordinance could result in a citation.
