July 4th Decisions Made in Light of Impacts from COVID-19
In York County, the possession, sale and/or use of all fireworks is illegal, except where a proper permit has been obtained (by a professional pyrotechnic company) from the York County Department of Fire and Life Safety for supervised public displays meeting applicable codes, standards and safety guidelines. No permits have been issued, nor will be issued for the July 4th holiday this year. Use of fireworks can result in their confiscation, and violators could be criminally charged.
To obtain a criminal warrant you must appear, in person, before a magistrate. The Magistrate's Office for York County-Poquoson-Williamsburg-James City County residents is located at:
Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail
9320 Merrimac Trail
Williamsburg, VA 23185
