  • Residents who have been hoarding fireworks since a burn ban was
    enacted this summer will finally have the chance to make some beautiful
    noise this weekend.
    According to Jane Longmeyer, public information officer for Dodge
    City, the city is “strongly encouraging” people to use up all of the fireworks
    that have been stored in garages and sheds based on resident safety.
    Law enforcement officials can still confiscate fireworks from anyone who
    is not using them properly, though. The city normally bans fireworks within
    the city limits but temporarily waives the ban for the Fourth of July. But city
    officials decided to keep the ban in place for the Fourth of July this year
    due to concerns about low moisture and hot, dry weather.
    Fireworks can legally be shot off within city limits from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m.
    this Sunday, Nov. 11. The waiver does not apply to fireworks on public
    property, including parks, school grounds and public parking lots. People
    who want to set off fireworks on private property must first seek permission
    from the owner.
    In addition to personal firework displays, the city will hold it’s yearly
    firework show at Memorial Stadium. The stadium will open at 7 p.m.; the
    show will begin at 8 p.m. A tip for those looking to get the best seat- the
    display will be shot from the field north of Memorial Stadium at First and
    Morgan.
    Music synchronized to the show will be played on KKJQ 93.7 FM.
