It’s time to celebrate our nation’s birthday with barbeques, picnics, festivities and fun. Yes, that’s right, Independence Day is nearly here and we are stoked! It’s time to celebrate ladies and gentlemen, and there are very few places in the country that can do it quite as spectacularly as Colorado Springs. With a crazy year and potential for fires, we want to make sure you enjoy the holiday as safely and responsibly as possible. We’re a sub-alpine desert after all, so we have to be safety conscious. Plus, there’s that stupid virus that’s making our usual Fourth of July festivities trickier than ever. But never fear, there’s still plenty to do.
Fireworks Displays in Colorado Springs (and Beyond)
One of our oldest and most well known fireworks displays is getting a makeover this year. Typically held in Memorial Park in downtown Colorado Springs, this annual celebration would draw tens of thousands of people to the park. Well, again, cue the stupid virus. Crowds that size are maybe not such a great idea right now. However, like so many other things, the City had a really innovative idea and has spread the show out to 10 different locations around town. We got bonus fireworks this year. So thanks Rona!
Sad that you’ll miss the symphony performance that accompanies the fireworks? They’ve got you covered there too. Tune into Sunny 106.3 FM, Y96.9 FM, KCME 88.7 FM, 92.9 Peak FM, or AM 740 KVOR to hear the whole thing from the comfort of your porch, car, or other brilliant vantage point.
Fireworks will be set from:
●Banning Lewis Ranch

● Patty Jewett Golf Course
● The Club at Flying Horse
