If you have some fireworks stashed away and feeling like letting a few rip tonight, on Territory Day, perhaps you need to think again.
Territory Day is traditionally the one day of the year members of the public can purchase and set off fireworks, but this year in different.
In maintaining crowd and gathering numbers under COVID-19 directions, firework displays and events across the Territory have been cancelled.
Police will be looking up as soon as the sun sets and anyone found igniting, discharging or in possession of fireworks would receive a fine of $1570.
Acting Superintendent Adrian Kidney said the community has been largely cooperative with restrictions.
"We've been fortunate community members have been understanding and cooperative of the COVID19 precautions, however this Territory Day is different to previous years and fireworks are not permitted at all."
"Under the Dangerous Goods Act, it is an offence to ignite, discharge or possess fireworks. We understand for some it is a tradition, but letting crackers off will cost you."
