(WXYZ) - With Memorial Day on the horizon, Michiganders will be

once again shooting off fireworks during the holiday to celebrate.


Back in 2011, the state legalized the sale and use of consumer-grade

fireworks, but in December, new laws were passed and signed.


Those new laws reduce the number of days that people can shoot off

fireworks.  Previously, they were allowed to use them around federal

holidays, including the day before, the day of and the day after.

  • The Saturday and Sunday before Labor Day until 11:45 p.m.

  • The Saturday and Sunday before Memorial Day until 11:45 p.m.

  • June 29 - July 4 until 11:45 p.m.

  • Also, July 5 ONLY if that day is a Friday or Saturday, until 11:45 p.m. 

  • Dec. 31 to 1 a.m. on Jan. 1
