Bursting in air: Fireworks displays set for Fort Wayne, area

COREY MCMAKEN | The Journal Gazette

Communities throughout the area will be celebrating Independence Day with fireworks displays this weekend.

Many programs include gatherings such as festivals, music and food. Plans can be found on city websites, through city and county visitors bureaus and on social media.

People wanting to set off their own fireworks should make sure to follow local guidelines.

In Fort Wayne, fireworks may be used only between 5 p.m. and two hours after dusk today, Saturday and Monday through July 9. On Sunday, the hours are 10 a.m. to midnight.

Safety tips from the city's website include making sure a responsible adult is supervising all fireworks activities and using fireworks in an open area away from buildings and your audience. Use safety glasses and take note of the wind direction when launching fireworks. Never let children play with or light fireworks.

Before lighting fireworks, be sure to have fire extinguisher, hose, bucket of water or water supply nearby.
