Fireworks go on sale in Lynnwood today. It’s one of the only cities in south Snohomish County in which fireworks are legal. They’re also allowed in Brier and Bothell, but they are banned in Edmonds, Woodway, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo and Everett. They are legal in unincorporated parts of the county.
Fireworks can be set-off within the city limits of Lynnwood from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on July 4 only.
There’s no public fireworks display in Lynnwood this year (a victim of budget cuts). Edmonds, Everett, Kenmore, Seattle and Bellevue all will be hosting aerial fireworks displays that are open to the public.
Last year there were more than 1,200 fireworks-related injuries reported across the state, according to the State Fire Marshal’s office. The majority of these incidents occur on July 4th and most were caused by 8 to 14-year-old boys.
