Fireworks allowed for New Year’s Eve, this year

Fireworks will be available to celebrate New Year’s Eve this year in Nakusp.

Fireworks will be available to celebrate New Year’s Eve this year.

The Nakusp General Store will be selling the bright delights from Dec 24 to 31, but you’ll have to have a permit to buy them if you live in town.

In order to set off fireworks in town, you have to be 18 or older and have written permission by the land owner.

The window for whooping it up with fireworks is narrow: they can only be let off between 12:00 and 12:30 a.m. on New Year’s Eve.

“This is a trial run,” said Fire Chief Terry Warren, who said what happens this year will determine if there will be celebratory lights in the sky over Nakusp in the future.

The General Store’s Val Scott posted the requirements on Facebook and asked that people be safe and responsible so fireworks can be made available next year.
