In response to your facsimile, Indiana does not require a license to shoot fireworks at a public display. Also, fireworks manufactured in accordance with NFPA 1126 are defined as "indoor pyrotechnics" and no public display permit is required. I'm not sure what you mean by "stage effects." If you mean the use of flash powder, assuming it is handled according to the manufacturer's instructions and in the usual 1 oz. increments, no permit is required.
Please feel free to e-mail me at the above address or call me at (317)233-5341 should you have any further questions.
Permit now required for public displays. For full info see:
