Dry Conditions May Alter Festival Plans for Fireworks
Conditions in each community will determine if a fireworks display can go ahead as planned. Hot and dry weather can make a traditional 4th of July fireworks display a dangerous thing. It's not uncommon for things to change by the time we get to July. Check with the community you wish to visit a few days prior to the holiday to confirm fireworks are still a go in your part of Colorado.
