The Rapid City Police Department wants to remind residents about firework regulations. My Town Black Hills reports that only novelty items are allowed within Rapid City limits and extra law enforcement is on hand to help enforce this. Novelty items include party poppers, snappers, sparklers, toy caps, and flitter sparklers. The use of other fireworks in town could result in the offender paying a fine, going to jail, or both.
KOTA TV reports fireworks will not be at Memorial Park for the fourth consecutive year. Conditions are wet enough this year, but the show requires too much prep time.
