View Approved DC Fireworks Stands 2009 in a larger map
DCRA has put together a useful map of all the city’s legal fireworks locations, so that if you’re looking for a few fun pyrotechnics to make your weekend a little more awesome, you can find the legal stuff. Fireworks are pretty carefully regulated in DC and the surrounding area, so be sure to check with your locality if you don’t plan to set these off in the District. Always have a fire extinguisher handy, and always play safe, okay?
And remember that, as much as it improves the experience, alcohol is not a good mix when you are handling explosives.
I used to live near some particularly crime-infested projects in NC where the thing to do on July 4th or any other exciting day was to shoot off your guns. I think I prefer fireworks.
