This year's fireworks display will happen on July 4, 2016. We have a new location for better viewing and even bigger fireworks.
The fireworks will blast off from the top of the butte above Red Hawk Golf Course, just south of The Meadows on the west side of Town, known as Santa Fe Quarry butte. This high-flying show can be seen from almost anywhere in Town. (See slideshow at right.)
Avoid the traffic and celebrate from your own backyard or from anywhere you can see the butte. The show starts at approximately 9:30 p.m. and will last about 15 minutes. In the event weather cancels the show, it will be rescheduled for Saturday, July 9.
Fireworks for personal use
If you choose to purchase fireworks for personal use, know some rules beforehand. Only fireworks sold within the state of Colorado are permitted. Permitted fireworks can only be used on the date of July 4th. Use of permitted fireworks before or after July 4th and/or the use of illegal fireworks can result in a fine and seizure of fireworks. For additional information including the sale of fireworks, check out the Town of Castle Rock municipal code.
Personal fireworks can be fun, but they can also be dangerous. 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. Keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby in case of a small fire. In the instance of any fire or injury, dial 9-1-1. Our firefighters are always standing by to assist in any emergency.
