Fayette County fireworks rules

The number one thing to remember about fireworks law is if it goes up or blows up, it is illegal in Fayette County.

The only fireworks allowed to be sold or used in Fayette County are ground and hand-held sparkling devices, such as sparklers, ground spinners and fountains.

All aerial and audible ground devices, such as bottle rockets and firecrackers, are prohibited in Fayette County.

LFUCG's fireworks ordinance provides complete information on local fireworks law. State law KRS 227.702 provides detailed definitions on all types of consumer fireworks.  

Anyone found in violation of the local fireworks ordinance will be cited by the Lexington Police Department.
