About Fireworks in Hawaii

Information about about fireworks in Hawaii. Includes Hawaii's fireworks laws, permits, safety, public aerial fireworks displays, and the movement to ban personal fireworks in Hawaii.

Visitors who spend the Fourth of July, New Year's Eve, or Chinese New Year in Hawaii, should prepare themselves for some loud and explosive action. I will never forget the first time I saw (and heard) one of my Hawaii neighbors string 10,000 firecrackers together, hang them over the branch of a tree, and set the whole thing on fire! Or wading through early-morning ankle-deep firecracker papers in the streets of Waikiki on New Year's Day.

Firecrackers are a strong cultural tradition in Hawaii, especially among Hawaii's Chinese American community, because in Chinese culture, fireworks during New Year Celebrations are suppose to scare away evil spirits and bring good luck during the coming year.
