There are three primary classifications of fireworks: Safe and Sane fireworks, public display shows and illegal fireworks.
Safe and Sane Fireworks
The City currently permits 25 fireworks booths that are run by non-profit organizations meeting specific guidelines outlined in the Fireworks Ordinance. There is a waiting list for available booths. These booths are obtained with additional population (one stand for every 5,000 people as per the Census Bureau) or if an organization gives up their stand. Complete the Fireworks Waiting List Application to apply to be placed on the priority waiting list to sell fireworks.
Firework Vendor Information
One firework packet needs to be filled out for each non profit. Only completed packets will be accepted. It is the responsibility of the vendor to ensure each packet is complete. If you have any questions, please contact the Visalia Fire Prevention Division, 559-713-4266.
Public Display Shows
All fireworks public display shows are regulated under a permit issued by the Fire Chief. All regulations, as outlined in Title 19, are strictly enforced. Public fireworks display shows are inspected by qualified fire inspectors to ensure public safety and are shot by trained & licensed technicians.
Any firework that flies in the air, darts across the ground or explodes is considered illegal in
