A lot of people are asking me my plans for July 4th weekend here in Boulder County and they are seeking suggestions for some outdoor fun. I’ve compiled this blog in order to education the masses on the not-to-miss events for this festive and time-honored holiday. Let’s begin with Folsom Stadium Fireworks as this is the most well known of tributes to the red, white, and blue. It begins when dark so be prepared to wait and keep the kiddos up late. You can view the spectacular lights from the stadium itself, or find yourself a spot around town. One popular gathering is Scott Carpenter Park. It’ll be packed, so get there early and set up a chair or blanket. The kids can climb around the playground and rocket ship while you wait. Bring your sparklers! Also included in prime locations for watching fireworks all over the county in one convenient spot – Chautauqua, Mt Sanitas, and Southern Sun Pub (I’m only kind of joking – it does have great views). There are so many Fourth of July events, your head will be seeing fireworks for months to come!
