The Fourth of July and the celebration of our nation’s birthday is coming up quickly. The City of Villa Park wants to remind everyone that only California State Fire Marshal approved Safe and Sane fireworks may be purchased, possessed or discharged within the city.
Villa Park is one of several Orange County cities where safe and sane fireworks are permitted for sale. The Villa Park Municipal Code restricts the total number of fireworks stands within the city to three (3). Click here to see Article 11-2.- Safe and Sane Fireworks in our Municipal Code.
