The 4th of July holiday is upon us, and the Town of Minocqua wishes to remind the public to be cautious and courteous with fireworks.
It’s not just pets and other animals that experience stress and anxiety from fireworks. Veterans with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) can suffer for weeks after the bangs, smoke and flashes have finished.
There are numerous organized public fireworks shows in our area where you can see the big displays celebrating our nation’s independence.
Be aware that the Town of Minocqua enforces Wisconsin State Law and its own Town Ordinance* with regard to fireworks.
Please be courteous with the use of private fireworks and always consider how they may affect others. Thank you.
*Town of Minocqua enforces Code of Ordinances Article XIV-Fireworks, Sec. 32-471-479: State Law Adopted; Parental Liability; Enforcement, Seizure & Penalty.
