Pasadena Fire and Police Officials remind residents and that all fireworks—including the “safe and sane” variety —are strictly prohibited and illegal in Pasadena. If found, fireworks will be confiscated; violators’ vehicles subject to confiscation and impound; and convictions carry up to one year in jail and fines up to $50,000 per incident.
Pasadena police and fire personnel will staff checkpoints around the Rose Bowl Stadium to seize all fireworks and arrest offenders. Parking enforcement officers will ensure that vehicles illegally parked in hillside areas on July 4 are impounded.
If you want to enjoy fireworks during the Fourth of July, consider attending a professional fireworks show like Americafest at the Rose Bowl Stadium.
