Homeowners encouraged to remember Indiana fireworks ordinances

Homeowners who wish to display fireworks at their homes may do so, but must adhere to Indiana and Indianapolis fireworks laws and ordinances, plus a few HOA requests:

  • Only people 18 and older can buy fireworks.
  • Someone 18 or older must be present when anyone younger than 18 is using or possessing fireworks.
  • Fireworks can only be used on the user’s property, the property of someone who granted permission for fireworks to be discharged or a place designated by the Indiana State Fire Marshal.
  • Fireworks may only be discharged from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. any day except on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and New Year’s Eve. On those holidays, discharge times are 9 a.m. to midnight.
  • All homeowners must be on their property and may not obstruct streets or other people’s property, driveways, or air space. This means fireworks that explode over another homeowner’s property without their consent is not permitted.
  • Be considerate of veterans and pets that may be harmed or stressed by the sounds of fireworks.
  • Fireworks are not permitted in common areas of the neighborhood.
