We are disappointed to let you know that the City of Charleston will no longer allow a firework show at this event due to safety concerns with the proximity of homes and businesses (this prohibition includes City-owned parks on Daniel Island). Please note that the Daniel Island CC&Rs as well as the City of Charleston Ordinance Sec. 13-191 prohibits the use, sale, possession, and discharge of any fireworks within the City of Charleston. Fireworks displays must be conducted by a licensed operator with a permit issued by the City of Charleston.
