Firework Displays Banned in Anchorage

By | December 31, 2013

There are places in Alaska where you can blow off fireworks on New Year’s Eve, but not within the city limits of Anchorage. The municipality will sponsor a fireworks display in the downtown area. City residents will face a citation and fine if they light their own fire crackers and bottle rockets. If you live in the Mat-Su Valley, you can shoot off your own fireworks from 6 pm till 1 am. Restrictions apply, including no pyrotechnics within 1,250 feet of a health care facility, school or library and not within 500 feet of any gas station or business where flammable fuels are stored.
