All fireworks are illegal in Massachusetts

MGL Chapter 148, section 39

The possession and use of all fireworks by private citizens is illegal in Massachusetts. This includes Class C fireworks which are sometimes falsely called “safe and sane” such as sparklers, party poppers, snappers, firecrackers, spinners and cherry bombs, to name a few. Sparklers burn at 1800ºF.

It is illegal to transport fireworks into Massachusetts, even if they were purchased legally elsewhere. Illegal fireworks can be confiscated on the spot.

Do not purchase fireworks through mail-order or on-line catalogues.

___________________

The launching of Sky Lanterns are prohibited in the Town of Pelham.

Because of the potential fire hazard presented by these devices, the Head of the Fire Department may prohibit their use under the provisions of Massachusetts General Law Chapter 148, section 5 as a condition likely to cause a fire.
