Are Fireworks Legal In PA?

Dear Mel,

Somebody told me that Pennsylvania residents can buy fireworks now. How true is that?


Karen H.

Hi Karen,

Great question! We are getting that one daily now. Pennsylvania just passed a law that says all fireworks are now legal in PA! You no longer need a permit in order to buy or set off any kind of legal firework. That includes the standard fountains, sparklers and novelties as well as firecrackers, artillery shells, multi shot cakes and anything else that is legal in the United States. So no matter what state you are from, and you are at least 18 years old with a valid id, you can come on in and shop and buy whatever fireworks you would like here at Mess's! 

Keep on shooting Karen!
