Fireworks Time Window Over in Bowling Green

By Michael Gossum | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The Fourth of July has come and gone, which means in the city of Bowling Green, you cannot shoot any more fireworks.

The window of time to shoot off fireworks is now closed, and this year Bowling Green City Police got 166 fireworks calls around the fourth.

City officials are now encouraging you to stop firing them off and to always obey the allotted time for lighting fireworks.

"10:00 and 11:00 were the ending time for fireworks. Unfortunately we had citizens that did not follow that. So, I do encourage citizens now to please notice, it's no longer legal to shoot fireworks of any type and I do hope they follow that," said Bowling Green City Commissioner Melinda Hill.

Despite all the calls, city officials say police did not write any citations this year.
