Are Fireworks Allowed in Sioux Falls?

"The use of fireworks within Sioux Falls city limits is illegal" - City of Sioux Falls

Fireworks that fly in the air with a report (in other words, the cool ones that contain a loud bang) are illegal to shoot within Sioux Falls city limits. Violators of the law could face a $95.00 fine.

Sparklers, snakes, and other pyrotechnics that don’t go airborne or have an audible report are legal in Sioux Falls.
