In 2024, North Bend implemented restrictions on the personal use of aerial fireworks to reduce fire risks and protect people and animals. The ordinance bans aerial fireworks within city limits but allows ground fireworks, hand-held sparkling devices, and smoke devices. The amendment to the Fireworks Code was passed in December 2022 but took effect in December 2023 due to a one-year waiting period required by the State of Washington.
