Though fun and beautiful, fireworks can be dangerous. Not only do they present a fire hazard, fireworks can also cause serious injuries.
Certain fireworks -- such as sparklers, fountains, smoke balls and ground spinners -- are legal in Georgia. Sparklers can emit showers of sparks over 20 feet in the air and are usually labeled with "emits showers of sparks." Generally, any fireworks labeled as "with report" or "shoots flaming balls" are not legal. Illegal fireworks include rockets, Roman candles, mortars, cherry bombs, fire crackers and similar products.
