Fourth of July Activities

With another year of record-breaking heat and the ongoing threat of fire in Colorado Springs, Denver, and throughout the Pikes Peak Region, many fireworks displays have been changed or cancelled.

But this year has more Colorado cities hosting fireworks than last, and even in cities where they have been canceled there are still several great Independence Day events and activities to enjoy with your family.
