Colorado Has Plenty Of Places To See Fireworks

(CBS4) - They may not be your typical stretch-out-on-a-blanket with crowds of hundreds or even thousands experience, but a number of Colorado communities are planning fireworks displays. The coronavirus pandemic means changes to how and where you can watch.

(Also note, we know too well how fire danger can spike around the 4th of July and that could mean other changes or cancellations to shows. We'll do our best to keep this page updated but we've also included links you can check out yourself.)
If we missed something let us know here.

Beaver Creek - As long health orders allow, Beaver Creek is planning a 4th of July celebration including Stars, Stripes And Slides at the base of Chair 6, a Kids' Zone at Village Plaza and concerts at Centennial Park.
The plan is to shoot off fireworks at 9:30 p.m.

Berthoud - Berthoud says it will launch its fireworks higher into the sky to make them visible from greater distances. This show happens on the 3rd of July. The fireworks will be launched from Waggener Farm at approximately 9:15 p.m. No groups will be allowed on or near that property.

Brighton - The city is set to host to 2020 Fourth of July Fireworks: Home Edition. That means no concert or community gathering at Carmichael Park.

Tune to a number of radio stations to hear the Colorado Springs Philharmonic and then you'll be able to look in a number directions to see the fireworks including over the Broadmoor, Fort Carson and Garden of the Gods. (CBS affiliate KKTV will also broadcast them.) The broadcasts start at 9 p.m. with fireworks scheduled for about 9:20 p.m.
