Fireworks legal in Iowa, but still illegal in Guttenberg


Although the new Iowa fireworks law doesn't change the rules in Guttenberg, residents can still enjoy a colorful display on Saturday, July 1, during the Chamber of Commerce's annual Stars & Stripes celebration. (Press photo by Molly Moser)

By Molly Moser

Early last month, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed a new law into effect that allows fireworks to be sold throughout the state to buyers age 18 and up. According to the bill, fireworks companies with permanent buildings can sell fireworks June 1 through July 8 and Dec. 1 through Jan. 3, in conjunction with the Fourth of July and New Year’s celebrations. Fireworks companies with temporary buildings, or tents, can only sell fireworks June 13 through July 8.
