Happy Fourth of July!! On this day in history 239 years ago, we declared our independence from Britain. Most Americans choose to celebrate by doing very " american' things, like grilling, drinking, and watching fireworks- but where to watch them? Quite a few municipalities are doing fireworks this year, but it's not really worth it to go see the unless you have great seats. However, it's important to note that most of Colorado has very strict firework laws- within Denver Metro:

  • Adams County - all fireworks are illegal

  • Arvada - all fireworks are illegal

  • Aurora - all fireworks are illegal

  • Denver - all fireworks are illegal

  • Fort Collins - all fireworks are illegal

  • Fountain - ground spinners, glowworms and sparklers are allowed

  • Jefferson County - all fireworks are illegal

  • Lakewood - all fireworks are illegal

  • Larimer County - all fireworks are illegal

A good rule of thumb is to call your local fire department to see if they are illegal in your area.


Here's the list of some of the best places to see fireworks - and what time the show starts... Don't forget to make sure you have a sober driver if you're doing any traveling, or hire Uber( but beware today is one of the sliding scale days where a cab will be cheaper!)
