In Arroyo Grande the discharge of “safe and sane” fireworks are limited to July 4th only.
In March 2022, the Arroyo Grande City Council amended Chapter 8.08 of the Arroyo Grande Municipal Code related to the discharge of “safe and sane” fireworks.
“Safe and Sane” fireworks sales begin at 12 Noon June 28th and conclude at 9:00 PM July 4th. However, fireworks are permissible for discharge ONLY on July 4th during the hours of 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
Violations of AGMC Section 8.08.100 for the possession, manufacture, storage, sale, handling or use of illegal fireworks shall be punishable by an administrative fine of one thousand dollars ($1,000). The Arroyo Grande Police Department will be deploying additional personnel and using drones to provide aerial support on July 4th.
Additionally, the Five Cities Five Authority released safety tips for using “safe and sane” fireworks on their website at www.fivecitiesfireauthority.org/fireworks.
