Legal Fireworks Information
Fireworks are for sale on the reservation at two locations. You must be 18 or older, with ID to prove age, in order to buy fireworks. With your purchase you'll receive a permit to shoot off the fireworks at designated places on the reservation. Remember, fireworks are illegal everywhere else in Washoe County and just about everywhere else in northern Nevada and California. Buying fireworks at Pyramid Lake does not change the legal status off the reservation.
