July 4 weekend is here. Celebrate safely with concerts, professional fireworks show


This Friday has a special relief about it. A holiday is around the corner, and many folks will be celebrating and taking much-needed downtime with family and friends. Here’s your guide to local events, fireworks and more.

Enjoy the Colorado Springs Philharmonic July 2

The Colorado Springs Philharmonic will be playing modern, Fourth of July themed music at the Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park Sunday, July 2. Tickets are still on sale at CRgov.com/PSMconcerts. This will be the perfect show for families, veterans and anyone looking to celebrate their freedom.

The gates open at 5 p.m., with the opener, Spinphony, starting at 6 p.m. The Colorado Springs Philharmonic will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Bring a low-profile lawn chair or blanket to comfortably enjoy the show. Tickets range from $20 to $40 for adults and $10 for kids in the lawn.

Professional fireworks still on for July 4

Starting at sundown (about 9:30 p.m.) on Tuesday, July 4, fireworks will shoot off from the top of the Santa Fe Quarry Mesa, located just south of The Meadows, above Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course.

Because of the elevation of the butte – about 6,700 feet – and because this is a high-flying show, there will not be a designated park for show-goers to attend. Instead, fireworks are expected to be seen from most places in Town, though, visibility may be limited in Crystal Valley Ranch, Plum Creek, Founders, Castlewood Ranch and Sapphire Pointe.

Get more information on this professional show at CRgov.com/Fireworks. Weather could impact the show. Stay tuned to the Town’s Facebook page (facebook.com/CRgov.com) for updates on July 4.

Fire restrictions prohibit personal fireworks

Due to hot weather and a lack of rain – both recently and in the forecast – the Town of Castle Rock is implementing Stage 1 fire restrictions. That includes a ban on personal fireworks.

According to Town Code, fireworks are only allowed on July 4. With this restriction in place, personal fireworks will not be allowed at all. Get details on what is and is not allowed under Stage 1 restrictions at CRgov.com/FireBans.

Burgess Memorial Pool is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 4, and Butterfield Crossing Pool is open noon to 6 p.m. on July 4.
