The 4th of July brings some of the best parts about being an American into one special day.

Infinite amounts of food, loud parties, and plenty of stuff blowing up.

But there are a few strange laws a number of states have in the books, that could bring your fun to a crashing halt.

Here in Tennessee, you can't dare your child to buy you beer.

Not that you would, not that it'd work, but a lawmaker decided it nescessary none the less.

And in Bell Buckle over in Bedford County, throwing bottles at trees is strictly prohibited.

Down in Alambama, it's illegal to keep an ice cream cone in your back pocket.

And if you're in Mobile in particular, you're not allowed to purchase confetti.

It's considered contraband.

There is one place party-goers can kick it without any real concern though.

Ohio has an actual law protecting you from being arrested on the fourth, as long as it's not a case of treason, felony or breach of the peace.
