HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

As families prepare to ring in the new year, fire officials are reminding everyone to celebrate safely. 

Firecrackers may be purchased on Oahu and neighbor islands with a valid permit. 

Firecracker sales begin the day after Christmas and last until midnight on New Year's Eve. They may be set off between 9 p.m. on Dec. 31 and 1 a.m. on Jan. 1.  Each permit is good for up to 5,000 firecrackers and supplies are limited. 

Honolulu fire officials say the safest way to ring in 2017 is by attending a professional fireworks show. 

Here's list of New Year's Eve firework show times across the state: 

Oahu

  • Aloha Tower Market Place, Honolulu Harbor: 9 p.m., 10 p.m., 11 p.m. and midnight
  • Barge fronting Kahala Avenue: 10:30 p.m.
  • Barge offshore of Waikiki: Midnight

Fire officials wants to remind the public to read and follow all instructions on firecracker products. It is illegal for minors to possess and ignite firecrackers, and firefighters suggest having a bucket of water ready in case of a fire. 

All aerial fireworks are also prohibited for consumer use. 

This list will be updated.
