Fireworks are back this year in full force, and we can't wait! This year it will be extra awesome with several fireworks shows all across the Denver metro area (and Front range). With the 4th falling on a Monday this year, we've all weekend to enjoy BBQs, family, friends, and FIREWORKS! Go America!
With the holiday falling on a Monday this year, most of the more giant fireworks shows will be on Monday the 4th! Some trends to note this year, some shows have been canceled due to fire danger, so make sure to reference your favorite show to ensure they will have real fireworks. Some communities have gotten creative, replacing fireworks with laser shows (Winter Park) or LED drones (Vail). Most of these events start in the morning.
We've listed every firework show for Denver's 4th of July holiday weekend. If you plan it right, you can easily see multiple shows all weekend. So have fun and stay safe!
