Statesville is not hosting its annual July Fourth Fireworks Celebration this year due to COVID-19 concerns. If you’re thinking about putting on your show, here’s what you need to know before you purchase legal fireworks from a reputable fireworks dealer: The only fireworks that are legal in North Carolina are sparklers, fountains, and novelty fireworks items that do not explode or are not intended to spin or to leave the ground and fly through the air. These include snake and glow worms, smoke devices consisting of a tube or sphere that produce white or colored smoke, trick noisemakers, including party poppers, string poppers and snappers and wire sparklers. You must be 18 to purchase fireworks in North Carolina and it is illegal for children under the age of 16 to possess fireworks. That’s why the Statesville Fire Marshall’s office stresses that fireworks should only be used under close adult supervision.
