All consumer fireworks are banned in New York. But if you cross the border to a neighboring state, oh say Pennsylvania, and legally obtaining fireworks and then bring them back to New York. What are the possible fines?

Possession of any firework is illegal in New York and you’re liable for a fine up to $250. If you’ve got fireworks valued over $50, then you’ve just committed a Class B misdemeanor and face a fine up to $500.

So what to do? Watch a community fireworks display. There are many across Central New York during the Independence Day season.
