The City of Carmel has enacted some ordinances designed to help keep all of our residents safe and help minimize disruption from loud noises and fireworks throughout the year. While there are a few holidays in American that are typically celebrated with fireworks or noise makers, city officials found it necessary to create a City ordinance limiting the days when residents can legally shoot off fireworks because the frequency of the displays were increasing causing a nuisance.
