Fireworks sales in Hastings to begin June 28

Fireworks sales begin Friday, June 28 within Hastings city limits under the city’s Code of Ordinances.

Permissible fireworks may be sold and ignited the following times and days:

10 a.m. to 10 p.m., June 28 to July 2

10 a.m. to midnight, July 3 and 4

Fireworks may not be used on any public street, alley, sidewalk, park or other property owned by the City of Hastings without a special permit issued by Hastings Fire & Rescue.

Fireworks may not be thrown from or into any motor vehicle.

Sky lanterns or any other free-floating device that includes a flame or heating device used as a lifting mechanism are prohibited.

Anthony Murphy, Risk Reduction Officer with Hastings Fire & Rescue, would like to remind everyone to remain diligent to prevent fires and burn injuries. Adults should light and/or supervise the fireworks, and everyone should soak used fireworks in a bucket of water overnight. Veterans and pets don’t necessarily enjoy the noise; Please be mindful of your neighbors and pets and observe the hours of discharge allowed by code. 

Hastings Fire & Rescue is once again providing citizens the opportunity to drop off unused, consumer grade fireworks for disposal. 

Drop off must be made at one of the two station locations:

  • Station 1: 1313 North Hastings Avenue

Homemade fireworks will not be accepted. Fireworks must be turned over directly to fire station personnel—not dropped off unattended.

Fireworks collection will end on July 31, at which time Hastings Fire & Rescue will properly dispose of the inventory collected.
