Do’s and Don’t For Minnesota Fireworks [VIDEO]
Booze and fireworks can be fun on the Fourth of July, but I think having all of your appendages and your face intact should be a priority. You don’t want to go back to the office and tell them why your middle finger and half your face is messed up.
Minnesota law only allows us to shoot off certain fireworks. Bummer, but it’s probably in your best interest to stick to what is legal. Fireworks that fly or explode are illegal in Minnesota. Even with the legal sparklers, fountains and spinning wheels, make sure you’re following the directions on the package. Don’t re-light a dud either. Tampering with fireworks is illegal. Make sure if you are buying your fireworks, you get them from someone who can legally sell them.
This is one of those cautions that we all know not to do, but just in case your brain is set to “off,” never point fireworks at people, animals or anything that could be damaged. Avoid setting them off inside of jars, cans or other containers. We know you want to show off, but again, who will be the one laughing when your house catches fire or you blow off your hand?!
Do have fun. With all the limitations we have and with the dry summer, it’s better to be safe. Don’t be a show-off, you will end up in a YouTube Fireworks Fail video like this one.
