Leave It To The Professionals

Maybe you've heard them going off in the neighborhood already.

But, most fireworks are illegal in Illinois.

Area police departments are already fielding calls from neighbors fed up with the noise.

"They bring out the big mortars, the M-80s, and all the different fun things, but we want to remind people that they are illegal.", said Pekin Public Information Officer Mike Eeten.

Eeten says even sparklers are illegal in Pekin, but smoke bombs and poppers are okay.

If police are called, you may get a warning, but, there's no guarantee you won't get a ticket. 

Peoria and East Peoria allow any fireworks that are legally sold in the state.
