Using Fireworks in Sioux Center

Fireworks

Use of fireworks will be allowed in Sioux Center at set hours from June 13 to July 8. 

The city follows the state law regarding the times of day during which fireworks are allowed:

• 9 a.m.-10 p.m. on June 13-July 8

• 9 a.m.-11 p.m. on July 4 and the Saturdays and Sundays immediately preceding and following July 4 (up to July 8 – this year the last extended use weekend is July 3-4).

“Fireworks can be part of celebrating together and having fun, but they also bring possible safety concerns,” said Sioux Center Police Chief Mike Halma. “We ask Sioux Center residents to use safety and common sense as they celebrate to prevent injuries and property damage. It’s good to have fun, but also important to be safe while we have fun.”

Using fireworks outside the allowed dates/times is punishable by a fine of at least $250. People must be 18 or older to purchase and use fireworks.
