Can I set off fireworks in Alaska?
Usually local governments, not the state, set the rules for fireworks. Bigger towns and developed areas are more likely to regulate or entirely prohibit fireworks. In Anchorage and the Mat-Su Borough, fireworks are illegal all year except in limited areas on New Year’s Eve, if the risk of fire is low. The City of Houston, which allows fireworks, is an exception. In Fairbanks, you generally need a permit to discharge fireworks. In Juneau, some areas allow fireworks and some areas ban them, so be sure to ask before you set off any fireworks. Outside regulated communities, you may still face penalties in state and federal parks or refuges, especially in fire season.
Keep in mind that you, or your parents if you are a minor, may have to pay for damage you cause by setting off fireworks. This may include the cost of fighting wildfires.
