California fireworks laws divide fireworks into two categories: “dangerous fireworks” and “safe and sane” fireworks.1

“Dangerous” fireworks include large items such as rockets and sparklers bigger than ten inches in length or one-quarter inch in diameter.

“Safe and sane” fireworks include small items such as fountains, spinners, and snap caps. The Office of the California State Fire Marshal puts a list on its website of fireworks that meet this definition.
