The City of Nappanee has enacted some ordinances designed to help keep all of our residents safe and help minimize disruption from loud noises and fireworks throughout the year. While there are a few holidays in America that are typically celebrated with fireworks or noise makers, city officials found it necessary to create a City ordinance limiting the days when residents can legally shoot off fireworks because the frequency of the displays were increasing causing a nuisance.
Here is a summary of the firework rules in Nappanee:
Legal consumer fireworks can be shot off between the hours of 5pm and two hours after sunset on the following days:
- June 25-30
- July 1-13
Between the hours of 10am and midnight on July 4th;
Between the hours of 10am on December 31st and 1am on January 1st;
Between the hours of 10am and midnight on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday on Memorial Day Weekend;
Between the hours of 10am and midnight on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday of Labor Day Weekend.
