In many cities in Iowa, fireworks usage is permitted December 10-January 3. However, in accordance with the City of Waukee's fireworks ordinance:

No person shall use, explode or discharge any consumer fireworks on days other than July 3-4, all dates inclusive, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. included in said period.

The ordinance DOES NOT ALLOW for fireworks usage during the winter period. Thus, fireworks usage within the City limits is not allowed even during the Christmas and New Year's holidays. Sales of commercial fireworks are permitted in Waukee during the December 10-January 3 window, but they must be discharged outside of the City limits.

Disregarding the ordinance is punishable by a fine of not less than $250 per violation.
