Fireworks get more play in Buckley

The cities of Enumclaw and Buckley take far different approaches when it comes to allowing fireworks.

The annual sights and sounds associated with the Fourth of July already are permitted in Buckley, which provides a nine-day window for discharging fireworks. The legal period began at noon Monday and continues until noon Tuesday.

Enumclaw takes a stricter approach, allowing the discharge of fireworks for 14 hours – from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. on the Fourth.

The section of the Enumclaw city code addressing fireworks also notes that fireworks may not be thrown from or toward a moving vehicle; may not be discharged in city parks; can be sold from June 28 through July 4; and may not be sold to anyone younger than 16.
