Halloween Fireworks - good or bad?

Our city council banned fireworks this year after two serious fireworks-related injuries last year in our community.

Anyone else living in a community with banned fireworks? Do you think fireworks should or shouldn't be banned?

Nope, not banned here. I say fire away. I love them.

Fireworks on Halloween? I didn't know that was a thing. Banning eggs, I can see that.

I didn't realize that anyone did fireworks on Hallowe'en either. Do the children still go trick or treating then?

They are talking about it everywhere I think. Mostly stupid kids of any age, pointing them at each other and at things that don't need fire in any form around them like gas tanks and houses.

I think Fireworks are great fun to watch but it only takes a few bad apples to spoil the lot.

in the UK we have a celebration on november 5th which is known as fireworks night by some. the debate rages but in essence I think it will always go on despite the scared pets and the ocassional injured child. Mostly what comes from it is a lot of beauty, a lot of fun, and a lesson in safety for the kids.

Most fireworks are not allowed here in the city and the only displays we have are the officially sponsored ones.
