4th of July Celebrations & Fireworks Guide

By Beth Marketos, Publisher's Assistant | Macaroni KID Lakewood-Littleton June 21, 2024

The 4th of July is right around the corner, and we love to celebrate our Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776)! Whether your kids love the booms of fireworks, or prefer to watch a parade from afar, there is a local celebration to enjoy! We have gathered the best of the best, so you don't have to!

Celebrating at home this year? We can help you with that, too! Check out our Red, White and Blue Eats, patriotic crafts, and fun facts below!

Publisher's Note - I’ll let you in on a little secret... if you want to have a 360 degree view of all of the fireworks in the metro area, bring your lawn chairs and set up shop at Robert A. Easton Regional Park (12819 W. Coal Mine Ave., Littleton, CO 80127) by the baseball field. No noise, no crowds, and a spectacular view!

Colorado fire restrictions may affect July 4th festivities. Check with the Division of Fire Prevention and Control for more information, and please check the status of your celebration destination before heading out.
