The Village of Milan welcomes all area residents to the annual Fireworks Celebration, planned for July 3rd at Camden Park. In keeping with state laws and as a matter of safety; fireworks of any sort will not be allowed in the park.

Safety is of the utmost importance due to the crowds normally experienced at this event. Additionally, it is against Illinois state laws to ignite fireworks, bottle rockets and other explosive devices without the proper certificates and permits. Sparklers are of a great concern, given the large number of children that attend this event, and therefore will not be allowed.

Blackhawk Fire Department does not issue firework permits for public displays of fireworks. These may be obtained by following the regulations of the County of Rock Island. Information is available on their website, www.rockislandcounty.org.
