The City of Loveland and the State of Colorado have restrictions on the types of fireworks that are considered to be legal. There are also laws in place that regulate the use of legal fireworks. These laws can vary from one jurisdiction to another, so be sure to check with your local law enforcement or other applicable city or county government agencies. Permissible (legal) fireworks include items such as sparklers, fountains, smoke balls, items with crackle and strobe effects, wheels and spinners, and various novelty items. These types of fireworks are allowed to be sold (with permit only) and used within the Loveland city limits and within unincorporated Larimer County, however, there are age restrictions to consider. Fireworks are not to be possessed or used by children under the age of 16 without direct adult supervision.
Non-permissible (illegal) fireworks are those which explode and/or leave the ground, such as firecrackers, bottle rockets, Roman Candles, aerials, missiles, and other similar items. These items are not permissible for either sale or use within the State of Colorado, with the exception of commercial-grade pyrotechnics used by licensed and permitted pyrotechnics technicians for public and private displays. Permits for these displays must be obtained from the applicable local government agencies.
