I'm a little late to the party, but thought you should know that sparklers are NOT legal in MA.

Madge - you are absolutely correct. I had checked with the police department in town originally, and they said sparklers are legal. But after talking with the fire chief and the state fire marshal's office, sparklers are ILLEGAL in Massachusetts, along with any other fireworks product. Thanks for letting me know!
