With the Fourth of July celebrations quickly approaching, the Branson Police Department and Branson Fire Rescue would like to remind residents and visitors of the Branson ordinance regarding fireworks within the city limits and other important reminders when it comes to fireworks.
According to Branson Municipal Code Sec. 42-56, Fireworks may be purchased in the City of Branson from June 20 through July 10, however, they can only be discharged from 7 a.m. to midnight on July 3 and 4, unless otherwise approved as a special event. To read more regarding the seasonal discharge of fireworks, sales and displays, read the full Branson Municipal Code regarding fireworks. Local neighborhood homeowners’ associations may have additional restrictions on fireworks. Contact your homeowners’ association representative to report any homeowners’ association violations.
The Branson Police Department would also like to remind community members to be considerate of animals and neighbors while shooting off fireworks and to always keep safety in mind. Animal owners should take extra steps during this time to ensure the safety of their pets. This might include keeping pets secured in a quiet room during displays, talking to your vet about medications that can help and make sure your pet is microchipped in case they get lost.
