Fireworks in Castle Rock

4thOfJuly TWND SMG

2019 fireworks show set for July 4!

It's a tradition to celebrate Independence Day with fireworks. So, turn your attention to Santa Fe Quarry Mesa for the Town's annual fireworks display. Similar to year's past, fireworks will shoot off at sundown (around 9:30 p.m.) from the butte located just south of The Meadows, above Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course.

What to know about the show

The high-flying show will be about 18 minutes long. You’ll know the fireworks are about to begin, because there will be a three-shot salute 5 minutes before the show starts. A similar fireworks salute will also happen about 1 minute prior to the show.

The fireworks should be seen from most places in Town. However, visibility may be limited in Crystal Valley Ranch, Plum Creek, Founders, Castlewood Ranch and Sapphire Pointe. If you’re parking in neighborhoods to see the show, please be courteous of driveways and adhere to any posted neighborhood parking restrictions. Also, parking along major streets and roadways will be limited.

Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course

The Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course will be open normal hours (6 a.m. to dark). If you choose to take in the fireworks show at the golf course, please do so from the Clubhouse parking lot or the driving range. The parking lot will be open after sunset. For safety and maintenance reasons, please stay in the parking lot or driving range area and off the greens, as rattlesnakes and other wildlife at the course can be a concern.

Please note, personal fireworks are not allowed at the golf course.

Fireworks for personal use

Only fireworks purchased at stands in Castle Rock are legal, and only on July 4. Remember, fireworks that leave the ground, explode, or break off into pieces are not allowed. If you bring in fireworks from outside Colorado, they are mostly likely illegal and subject to seizure, summons or fines. Castle Rock Fire and Rescue and Castle Rock Police also wants to remind you it is unlawful for anyone under 16 to purchase fireworks. If you choose to use fireworks on July 4, please remember to keep them away from dry grass, homes and anything flammable.

If a fire ban is in place, personal fireworks will not be allowed. For updated information, check out the current fire bans. For additional information including the sale of fireworks, check out the Town of Castle Rock municipal code.

Fireworks safety 

Personal fireworks can be fun, but they can also be dangerous. Be sure to keep children and animals away from fireworks to avoid injury. Never shoot fireworks near anything that can easily burn such as trees, homes, fences and dry grass. And, keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby in case of a small fire.
