Hours and areas in Jefferson and Clallam counties

Consumer fireworks can be discharged on New Year’s Eve in the unincorporated area of Jefferson County and areas west of the Elwha River in Clallam County.

The discharge of fireworks on New Year’s Eve is prohibited in all of unincorporated Clallam County east of the Elwha River as well as in Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend.

Where legal consumer fireworks are allowed, they may be set off between 6 p.m. on New Year’s Eve until 1 a.m. on New Year’s Day, according to state law.

State law does not apply to tribal lands.

Among illegal fireworks are M-80s and M-100s, improvised explosive devices and altered fireworks.
