UPDATE: Fourth of July fireworks around the Tennessee Valley
By WRCB Staff
With July 4th falling on a Tuesday this year, fireworks fans will have plenty of chances to enjoy fireworks from all over the Tennessee Valley. Most shows will start after dusk, and they are part of larger celebrations for the holiday.
The following is the fireworks policy for the city of East Ridge:
Citizens and visitors to East Ridge should be aware that while fireworks are sold in the City, it is illegal to shoot fireworks within the city limits.
During the July 4th holiday, East Ridge officers responding to calls of fireworks will first warn the offender. If the fireworks continue, the officer will then issue a citation and confiscate the remaining fireworks.
The department anticipates fireworks will start during the weekend prior to the 4th.
