Are Fireworks Legal in Illinois?

Question: What kinds of fireworks are legal in Illinois? Answer: The Pyrotechnic Use Act in Illinois bans the sale, possession and use of all "consumer fireworks." However, certain pyrotechnics are not considered consumer fireworks, such as sparklers, snap 'n pops, and snakes. Municipalities can pass ordinances that either ban or allow the sale and usage of fireworks, including consumer fireworks.
