There were only five fireworks permits issued this Halloween by the District of Port Hardy.

This is down from the seven permits that were issued in 2022, 13 permits in 2020, and the nine permits that were issued in 2019.

The district’s fireworks bylaw states that any person 19 years of age or older, before discharging consumer fireworks, must apply for and receive a permit, and that permit applications for consumer fireworks events must be submitted to the district no later than 12:00 noon on Oct. 31 and, if Oct. 31 falls on a day other than a business day, no later than 12:00 noon of the last business day prior to Oct. 31.
