Fireworks and Independence Day celebrations go hand in hand. Public firework displays are a much loved tradition in Morgan, but government officials ask that you use common sense and courtesy when conducting backyard displays.
Morgan City and Morgan County have adopted the Utah code when it comes to private firework displays. According to Utah code 5-4-5, “It is unlawful to discharge fireworks in such a manner that the fireworks project over or onto the property of another person without the consent of the person owning or controlling such property.”
This makes it difficult to let off fireworks in smaller subdivisions.  With the removal of some height restrictions, even legal fireworks can end up in someone else’s yard, or worse, on their home.  Local officials are asking residents to consult their neighbors before the launching of private firework displays to prevent any discord.
If you happen to see any violations of the above provisions, please go through the proper authorities for enforcement of this code.  Enforcement of this code is handled by your local fire chief or police department.  Residents must be willing to make an official statement in order for the ordinance to be properly enforced.
Fireworks may only be discharged three days before the holiday, on the holiday and three days after, so your window for Independence Day fireworks has passed.  This information will however, apply to Pioneer Day celebrations.

Every year hundreds of thousands of Americans celebrate Independence Day with a big bang of fireworks.  You can find stands on just about every street corner during the holiday, but where you choose to buy your sparklers and fountains makes a difference to one local family.
Morgan’s neighborhood firework stand is sponsored by Acme Discount Fireworks, but run by Morgan residents Jaime and Gina Grandpre. 
Shopping local helps unite our community. “Knowing that you are supporting your neighbors and friends, gives us all a sense of pride in where we live,” commented Gina. 
In support of shopping local, the family decided to change locations this year.  Instead of being housed in the parking lot of Ridley’s, the firework stand will be located in the lot next to Front Street Gifts and Crossfit Unknown.  This lot is owned by a Utah resident, resulting in a much better deal on the lease of the property, according to the Grandpre family.

This time of year is generally filled with shopping and stress.  There is pressure to make sure everyone is happy on Christmas morning.  It is rare that we actually take the time to step away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a day with our families.

In the past, strings of Christmas lights were reserved for houses and trees. However, this year the lights got a little momentum in a Christmas light parade.

The parade took the established Morgan parade route from the high school to the fairgrounds; however this parade took on a whole new look.
