Ending 2020 With A Bang!

Consumer fireworks remain legal within the Deer Park City limits on New Year’s Eve, starting at 5pm and ending at 12:30am January 1st. 

It is important to note, however, that there are still restrictions in place. Consumer fireworks are only allowed on private residential property with the permission of the homeowner, and may not be discharged on public property, which includes streets, parks, and school property. 

In addition, not all fireworks are allowed. Because there will be no consumer fireworks for sale in Deer Park during December, consumers may be tempted to purchase their supplies from a nearby reservation. Keep in mind that many of the items for sale there are not legal off the reservations, including fire crackers, sky rockets and missiles, and bottle rockets. A complete list of the consumer fireworks that are legal in Washington State, as well as laws and ordinances, can be found on the Washington State Patrol’s website at WSP.wa.gov/fireworks

When the name Crawford is used in Deer Park, it is understood to be Crawford Street, the primary east-west road in the city. Long before Crawford became known as a street, a man named George E. Crawford was known over a century ago as a local lumber entrepreneur. His family helped build the town’s foundations and the oldest, still operating, church in Deer Park.
