Follow the rules for ‘Boom City’ fireworks

TULALIP — If you plan to purchase fireworks for the Fourth of July, just remember that many of the fireworks at "Boom City" can only be lit within the boundaries of "Boom City."

TULALIP — If you plan to purchase fireworks for the Fourth of July, just remember that many of the fireworks at “Boom City” can only be lit within the boundaries of “Boom City.”

Both Marysville and Arlington limit their legal fireworks to Class C, or “safe and sane” fireworks.

Native American reservations may sell fireworks that do not conform to those laws, but such fireworks must be detonated on reservation lands.

The fireworks stands of “Boom City” on the Tulalip Reservation provide a lighting and detonation area on site for customers.

Security personnel will monitor the area to ensure that children age 12 and younger have adults age 18 or older present.

Fireworks that are illegal off tribal lands include bottle rockets, skyrockets, missiles and firecrackers.

M-80s and larger, as well as dynamite and any improvised, homemade or altered explosive devices, such as tennis balls, sparkler bombs or cherry bombs, are likewise illegal.

Anyone who possesses or uses such illegal devices can expect to be charged with a felony.

The purchase of fireworks over the Internet is illegal.

Fireworks must be purchased from a licensed retail stand during the legal sales period.

Illegal fireworks are often unpackaged and wrapped in plain brown paper.

Officials warn against purchasing fireworks that are not in their original packages, or are in opened or damaged packages.

“Boom City” is located west of the Tulalip Resort Casino at 10274 27th Ave. NE, and is open from roughly 6 a.m. to midnight daily, through July 4.
