Every year people ask about the legality of fireworks in DC so I just wanted to share a note from DCRA:

As the July 4th holiday approaches get all the required permits, licenses, and inspections for you to legally set up a fireworks stand and sell fireworks. Use or the possession of illegal fireworks in the District of Columbia could face fines and penalties of up to $2,000 and/or arrest for further prosecution.

Permits, certificate of occupancy, FEMS application, and Basic business license are required to legally operate a fireworks sales stand in the District of Columbia.

The deadline for submitting applications to DCRA is June 20, 2011
