Is it legal to use fireworks?

Discharging or selling fireworks violates City Ordinance, unless special criteria outlined by state law apply and the proper permitting is obtained through the City of Wheaton. Leave the fireworks to the professionals; attend local fireworks displays to prevent injuries or death by recreational fireworks.
