Safe and sane fireworks is not a concept recognized in Shasta County. Although they may be labeled safe-and-sane and can be purchased legally just across the county line in Cottonwood, fireworks of any kind are illegal even to possess in Shasta County. Citations will be written for possession. If fireworks are lit, the penalty is greater, and if fireworks cause damage, the person responsible or their parents can be held liable for all costs.
Public fireworks displays all fireworks begin at 10 O'clock:
Saturday night a display will be put on at Burney High School as part of Burney Basin Days.
Weaverville's Lions Club 4th of July Celebration will feature fireworks on Sunday the 3rd.
Anderson Explodes Sunday night at the fairgrounds. Prior to that an all-you-can eat barbecue will be held by the 4-H and F.F.A. with meat from this year's livestock auction at the Shasta District Fair.
Redding's Freedom Festival is Monday. Thousands will crowd the civic auditorium lawn. The Sundial Bridge will be closed and there's a strict no open container alcohol policy.
Mount Shasta City will have fireworks over Lake Siskiyou, also on Monday the 4th.
