Advisory

Fireworks tonight - 9PM, Miller Meadow - Enjoy and leave it to the professionals!

Tonight is the night for professional fireworks in Hatboro - 9 PM at the Miller Meadow Summer Fun Festival. The weather is beautiful so come out and enjoy the show and the carnival!

While we are speaking of fireworks, as most people are aware, Pennsylvania changed the law on consumer class fireworks in 2017. While consumer grade fireworks can legally be purchased by persons 18 years of age or older, there are many restrictions on where fireworks may be ignited. Additionally, local ordinances,. such as noise ordinances, apply. Fireworks are not permitted in borough parks or parking lots nor on school property. State restrictions on igniting fireworks include:

*They cannot be ignited or discharged on a public or private property without express permission of the property owner.
·
*They cannot be discharged from or within a motor vehicle or building.
·
*They cannot be discharged toward a motor vehicle or building.

*They cannot be discharged within 150 feet of an occupied structure, whether or not a person is actually present.

* They cannot be discharged while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or another drug.

Please leave the fireworks to the professionals this summer. Be safe in your travels and remember those that have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation on this Memorial Day weekend.
