City of Lawton Issues Reminder on Fireworks Ordinances
The City of Lawton just released a statement or reminder concerning the fireworks ordinances reminding citizens that the discharging of fireworks within the city limits is prohibited. That also includes the city's lakes: Lawtonka and Ellsworth along with all city parks and public use areas. I don't think firework stands are even in the city limits anymore. If you're planning to buy some you'll have to head out of town. Or at least I haven't seen a fireworks stand in town in a few years. The city ordinance excludes professional fireworks displays so at least we'll get to watch, even if we can't light them ourselves.
Luckily for me I have several friends and family members who live outside the city limits so I'll be able to light the fuse myself. While I love watching displays, it's just not the same if you're not the one lighting it and in possible danger. If there's little to no chance of serious bodily injury or death I'm less than enthused, that's just me though. There's going to be quite a few Independence Day celebrations in and around Lawton, Fort Sill this year. We'll get lots of opportunities to see firework displays including Lawton's Freedom Festival.
