Guy Fawkes – Where we can legally blow shit up…

It’s around that time of year again when we are legally allowed to throw firecrackers (in designated areas ofcourse). I have got a list of all the areas you can throw cherry bombs, widow makers, tom thumbs or what ever else you want to on the 5th of November. Obviously be careful when throwing firecrackers, as anything can could go wrong and you can easily get hurt or harmed. Trust me, I have seen this happen before… But don’t worry about that for now, here is  a list of all the designated areas for Guy Fawkes:

Currently some of these places aren’t available to throw fireworks. I will be finding an updated list ASAP! Many apologees from my side!

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…


  1. Wanted to find out about legal firework sites in Jozi and seems like you can blow shit up in any clearing as long as there are no animals present! haha

    You just have to follow these rules:

    In terms of the City’s by-laws, no person should use fireworks within 500 metres of any explosives factory, explosives storage place, petrol depot or petrol station, inside any building, at any public place or at any school, old age home or hospital. A fine of R1 500 may be slapped on any person found violating these laws.

    Lighting or igniting fireworks in any place where animals are present will incur a fine of R1 000.

    1. “you can blow shit up in any clearing as long as there are no animals present” …. hahahahahaha- its obviously a rule that the inhabitants of Jozi find it difficult to stick to…

  2. Hey

  3. Thanks Patrick
