The Colorado Rapids are once again hosting fireworks on the Fourth of July, The Denver Post reported in May, with the club’s 24th annual 4thFest Celebration at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Billed as the state’s largest display, the free, family-friendly event is holding back on additional programming this year. The nearby soccer game costs money, but fireworks can be seen all around the stadium at 6000 Victory Way. Hours: 5-9 p.m. Parking lots are limited (RTD bus and rail travel is encouraged) and open at 4 p.m.


Civic Center‘s traditional Independence Eve will not return this year, but Elitch Gardens is offering its dusk fireworks display visible from the surrounding areas on July 4, preceded by free, downtown-visible displays at Coors Field on July 2 and 3 (following the Colorado Rockies games against the Cardinals).


This year’s fireworks display takes place at Erie Community Park (450 Powers St.) on July 3, with the fireworks launched from the rooftop of the Erie Community Center. Limited parking is also available there starting at 7 p.m.


Lions Park Ballfields are the site of Golden’s 9:30 p.m. fireworks display on July 4, with the best viewing at the park or along the creek. Lookout Mountain Road will be closed all day to everyone except residents. A festival, starting at noon, will lead up to the display — likely with rides, face painting, live music and food/drinks — but details are forthcoming. 1300 10th St.


Coal Creek Golf Course at 585 W. Dillon Road will be closed to viewing this year, and Louisville will not offer pre-fireworks activities. The 9:45 p.m. display, however, will be staged from a higher elevation; the city’s website suggests designated viewing sites that open at 8:30 p.m.


Family activities begin at 4 p.m. at Carpenter Park (11000 Colorado Blvd.) with food and drinks, live music, a presentation of colors and more. Paved and unpaved parking is available in the lots south of the Carpenter Park Fields and west of 108th Avenue. And don’t miss the annual tradition of the nighttime parachutists, who will herald the dusk fireworks.


City festivities are on hold this year, minus the 9:15 p.m. fireworks display at Westminster City Park, 10455 N. Sheridan Blvd. Parking is limited, and organizers recommend using a free shuttle from various locations in Westminster and Hyland Hills. Nearby Northglenn will host Fourth of July events at a quartet of parks in conjunction with Westminster’s display. and

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend and enjoys the Broomfield fireworks display.
