Georgia allows wire or wood sparklers, glow sticks, noise makers, poppers, snappers, and drop pops. Georgia does not allow any fireworks that explode, firecrackers, torpedoes, skyrockets, Roman candles, bombs, certain other types of sparklers, and any other types that contain explosive or flammable substances. In short, if it explodes or propels itself through the air, it is most likely illegal in Georgia!
Not only are fireworks extremely dangerous, having illegal fireworks can result in fines and possible jail time. Additionally, there may be local county and city ordinances regarding the possession and use of fireworks, so please check local laws.
The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to leave it to the professionals. Around the 4th of July holiday there are many places that are properly permitted for fireworks shows and have trained professionals working with the fireworks.
A good rule of thumb, to stay legal, is to only buy fireworks within the State of Georgia from reputable stores such as your local grocery or department store.
