Cheyenne Police: Consumer fireworks not allowed on private, public property


CHEYENNE, Wyo. — With the Fourth of July holiday weekend approaching, the Cheyenne Police Department took to social media to warn that consumer fireworks are not allowed on private property within city limits.

“They are also prohibited on public property, which includes parks, schools, streets, alleys, and public right-of-ways,” the department said. “Violators found in possession of fireworks will have them confiscated and could be issued a citation with a possible fine.

“This includes possession of black cats, roman candles, and screaming mimis. You can’t possess or sell any fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, or zippity do das. And in no way can you light up some spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, hoosker doos, hoosker don’ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or single whistlin’ kitty chasers. It’s just not allowed,” the department said, referencing a list of fireworks rattled off by the main character in the film “Joe Dirt.”

The police department asked that residents and visitors instead watch the annual fireworks show hosted by the city and Cheyenne Frontier Days on July 4.
