As we approach another July 4th holiday, it's a good time to review the Pennsylvania fireworks laws that apply those of us in the Keystone State.
The laws aren't too complicated. Basically, use of just about any firework is banned unless you have a permit. However, use of novelty items like sparklers and cap guns are permissible.
But if the use of fireworks is generally illegal, you may be wondering why you see so many tents and stands offering the sale of fireworks on Pennsylvania streets?
