(Several communities change their mind)….It was not long ago that fireworks were only sold in Westmorland and Calipatria
. The County had adopted an ordinance outlawing the sale of fireworks, and most communities followed suit. Some have now changed their minds. Fireworks this year are being sold in Westmorland and Calipatria, as well as in Brawley, Calexico and Holtville. Some vendors will be selling past the 4th of July. Fireworks are still illegal in the County and in El Centro. It is strongly suggested the fireworks be used in the community of purchase. They will not be allowed on the campus of Imperial Valley College during the Freedom Fest festivities on July 4th.
