Fireworks are banned in many areas, so be aware when celebrating tonight


If you’re thinking about setting off fireworks tonight to ring in 2020, you should be aware you could be starting the new year and decade by committing a crime.

In Wenatchee and Chelan County, for example, there are year-round fireworks bans in place.

The same holds true for Cashmere and Entiat. Most other North Central Washington cities and counties follow state laws.

That means fireworks are legal from 6 tonight until 1 Wednesday morning.

Of course, you can always leave it to the experts and enjoy a professional fireworks show in Chelan that starts at 9.

Or you can skip the fireworks all together and go to Pybus Public Market, where there will be live music, dancing and the annual dropping of the apple at 9, 10 and midnight.
