Fireworks are only allowed to be discharged on the day of July 4th between the hours of noon and 11 p.m. They are no longer allowed on the days leading up to the holiday.
The only type of fireworks allowed to be discharged in Duarte are those marked Safe & Sane and those that have been purchased in California. These types of fireworks are legally sold in Duarte at five different locations starting June 30th.
